Yushin Okami (25-5) pulls out the win over “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Mark Munoz (8-2). It was a back and forth fight with both fighters close to finishing their opponent at times, but in the end Okami was able to pull out the decision 29-28 Okami 29-28 Munoz, 29-28 Okami.
It could easily be argued that Okami dominated position majority of the first and third round. The Japanese star Okami rocked the Oklahoma State wrestler Munoz early in round three, setting the pace for the final round in his favor. Notably this is Okami’s ninth win in the UFC octagon. Okami has previously stated to the press that he is looking to get a rematch against the current middleweight champion Anderson Silva who he received a win over in 2006 due to illegal kicks by Silva.
