      The first round had Kunchenko chipping away with his boxing, while stuffing the takedown attempts by Okami. Round one goes to Kunchenko. The second round was more of the same, with Kunchenko stuffing shots, while firing big punches & knees in the direction of Okami. Neither fighter has done much damage yet, but I think Kunchenko has landed the cleaner shots, and he's been able to shutdown the wrestling of Okami, so I have Kunchenko ahead 20-18 going into the final round.
     The final round was more of the same, with Kunchenko landing some big punches & kicks, while he continued to stuff the shots from Okami. Kunchenko looked good in this fight, and Okami looked like typical Okami. This should be a 30-27 decision for Kunchenko, and all 3 judges agreed, giving Kunchenko the unanimous decision victory, as he moves on to a 20-0 undefeated record.

      Okami scored a quick takedown early in the first round, as he was clinging to Lima's back, while Lima scrambled around to try to escape Okami's back control. Okami eventually ended up inside Lima's guard, and the fight basically turned into a stalemate on the ground for a couple of minutes. That was a boring round, but Okami clearly won by pinning Lima against the fence and holding him there for 5 minutes.
     The second round was another round of Okami taking down Lima and holding him down. Lima landed a few decent elbows while trying to stuff shots, but for the most part, it was just another round of wasting the audience's time. The final round started with Okami scoring another takedown. Okami wins the boring 30-26 unanimous decision victory.

Technical Submission (Von Flue Choke)
1:50
      This fight started with Okami immediately shooting for a takedown. OSP stuffed his shot, and tried to setup a guillotine choke. OSP gave that up, and secured half mount instead. He tried to setup his Von Flue choke, Okami went for a guillotine, which was fucking retarded, and OSP put him to sleep. That was a solid quick finish for OSP, but that was the dumbest gameplan I've ever seen, from Okami, he was fighting 2 weightclasses above his normal weightclass, and he took the fight on short notice. This fight was fucking stupid, and it was a terrible main event. Why wasn't Gadelha vs. Andrade the main event? Ths UFC is falling apart. Still, congrats to OSP for having the "Most Successful Von Flue Chokes in UFC History", as this marks his third.

      Okami clinched early, and slammed Lobato to the ground 30 seconds into the first round, landing inside his guard. Lobato looked like he wanted to setup a Kimura or something, Okami worked some ground & pound, Lobato went for an Omoplata, switched to a leg lock, stood up, and Okami clinched and took him down again. Okami tried to pass to mount, and Lobato grabbed his leg again, as Okami stood up. Lobato rolled for a heel hook, and Okami pulled his leg free and dropped a punch before settling into Lobato's guard again. They stood up halfway through the round, Okami continued to clinch, he dumped Lobato to the ground again, and Lobato stood up again. Okami continued with the tight clinch, and then he threw Lobato down again, they stood back up again, and Okami dropped for a takedown, but Lobato caught him in a tight guillotine choke, but couldn't wrap his legs around Okami, so he popped his head free, and continued to smother Lobato. They stood back up again, and Okami continued to clinch. Really, Okami is just trying to grind on Lobato, and Lobato is going for countless submissions, so I'm scoring that round for Lobato, even though 90% of judges would probably give it to Okami.
     Okami shot for a takedown immediately to start the second round, and Lobato caught him in another guillotine choke on the way down. Okami pulled his head free, dropped a few punches, and continued to work his grind. Okami threw a few shoulder strikes, but for the most part, he was just holding Lobato down. Lobato worked his way back to his feet 2 minutes into the round. Okami continued to clinch, and he slowly pulled Lobato to the ground again. Okami has to be one of the most boring ass "Lay & Pray" style fighters I've ever seen. Lobato on the other hand at least seems dangerous with his submission grappling. The referee stood them up with 90 seconds left in the round due to boredom. Lobato threw a punch, and Okami took him down. The second round clearly goes to Okami based on top control, since Lobato was less active with his submissions in this round, but I still have the fight all tied up going into the final round. Lobato cranked on a standing Kimura attempt in the final 10 seconds, but Okami was saved by the bell.
     Lobato started the final round with a decent kick, Okami shot for a takedown, Lobato almost stuffed the shot, but Okami completed it 30 seconds into the round, landing back inside Lobato's guard. Okami threw a couple of punches, and Lobato rolled for another leg lock again, but Okami stood up out of it, and settled back into Lobato's guard. Okami worked some more ground & pound, and then Lobato stood up 2 minutes into the round, but Okami continued to clinch grind him against the fence. Okami tripped him to the ground again, and continued to hug him tightly. Okami finally passed to side control halfway through the round. Okami slowly passed to half mount with 2 minutes left in the fight. The fight eventually goes to a boring ass unanimous decision, where the judges gave Lobato ZERO credit for his submission attempts in the first round. Congrats to Okami for another boring ass decision.

Decision (Split)

      These guys danced around without doing much to start the first round, until Bradley took down Okami against the fence. He held him down for a few seconds, and then they stood back up. They spent a while clinching, without much of anything happening, and then they split up. A few strikes were exchanged, and then Bradley dropped Okami with some punches, and got on top of him in half mount. Round one clearly goes to Bradley.
      The second round started with some clinching, Bradley pressed Okami against the fence, and then Okami clipped him with a knee to the groin. When the fight started back up, they both tried to take each other down, and ended up spending most of the round just clinching back & forth again. I was going to give that round to Bradley based on controlling the clinch, but by the end of the round, his face was busted up & bloody, possibly due to an accidental clash of heads? So I guess Okami wins the round based on damage.
      The final round started with Bradley shooting for another takedown, he was stuffed again, and they spent the rest of the round clinching. Okami threw him down at one point, and Bradley's scar tissue popped open, causing the doctors to check out his cuts, but I STILL haven't seen Okami deal any significant damage, so I feel like Bradley is losing based on damage from previous fights. In the end, two judges gave the fight to Yushin Okami, for the boring split-decision victory.

      The first round was very close. Comparable striking, and a lot of clinching, that lead to a lot of nothing. (Pretty much what most people would expect from a Fitch vs. Okami fight). Fitch secured a couple of takedowns in the second round, clearly winning that round, by preventing Okami from being able to do much of anything at all. Fitch secured another takedown to start the final round, and beat up Okami a little bit, but for the most part, just kind of tried to hold him down. Nice crisp unanimous decision victory for Jon Fitch, but... I mean... I can't honestly say I'm very excited about a Jon Fitch vs. Jake Shield title fight, and without Rousimar Palhares in the WSOF, this entire division feels a little... "uneventful"?

      Meh... On paper, this seemed like a decent main event, and it was competitive, but it wasn't very exciting. It reminds me of why I was never a fan of Okami in the UFC. There was decent striking happening, decent clinch work, decent stuff from both guys, but not a lot was really going on, until it looked like Okami started to get nervous or something in the fourth round, and Branch was able to capitalize by punching him in the face, knocking him to the ground, and he finished him off with some punches. The referee might have stopped it a little too quickly, because it didn't look like Branch was actually doing any damage, but, I was getting bored anyway, so I'm glad the fight was stopped. Big win for Branch.

Submission (Arm-Triangle Choke)
9:46
      Well, it's always cool to see these UFC fighters, like Yushin Okami, take on people from other organizations, but... who the hell is Svetlozar Savov? This guy clearly wasn't in Okami's league. Okami won the first round by taking the fight to the ground and controlling Savov. The second round was more of the same, with Okami eventually finishing the fight with a tight arm-triangle choke.

      Fucking awesome! Jacare is insane! He started this fight strong, pinning Okami against the cage, and turned on some jackhammer punches, pounding the FUCK out of Okami's face. Eventually, the broke apart, and danced around for a minute, but eventually, Jacare knocked Okami to the ground, and turned on those BIG HEAVY FAST JACKHAMMER PUNCHES, forcing the referee to stop the fight, before Jacare drilled Okami's head into the ground. BRUTAL win for Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza. Awesome fight!

      Well, this fight sucked. Hector Lombard is an explosive badass, SOMETIMES. Tonight was another one of those nights where he basically sleeps through the fight though. Yushin Okami took him down and controlled him for the first two rounds, so I gave those rounds to Okami. Lombard turned up the heat in the third round, swinging wildly for a couple of minutes, and eventually ended up in Okami's guard for the remainder of the fight. It got close there at the end, but ultimately, I gave the fight to Okami, and two of the judges agreed with me.

      Nobody could have predicted this one! Yushin Okami comes out, controls the fight with boring grappling skills for 3 rounds, and wins via ANOTHER decision. Oh wait, yeah... we all assumed that would happen. I'm pissed that Belcher wasn't able to finish this fight and come out on top.

      I've never really been a fan of Yushin Okami at all, because he's one of those old school wrestlers that basically just lays on people, and controls them, but doesn't do anything impressive. With that being said, that's how this fight went down, and in the second round, he mounted Buddy's back, and punched him in the arm a bunch of times (Buddy was covering his head with his arm) and the referee got bored and stopped the fight. Yushin wins! Yay?

TKO (Punches)

      This fight (according to Joe Rogan), was the greatest comeback of all time! It really was a terrific fight though. The first round consisted of Yushin Okami outstriking Boetsch while standing, causing blood to flow from both of Boetsch's cheeks. The second round consisted of Okami tripping Boetsch, mounting him, and beating the shit out of him. Round three consisted of Boetsch quickly knocking Okami the fuck out, with a series of dirty boxing style uppercuts, and some HUGE HEAVY punches from all directions. Tim Boetsch is a beast, and he beat probably the best Yushin Okami that I've ever seen. Great fight!

      Anderson Silva is SO badass! The first round, Kenny Florian summed it up nicely, by stating that Anderson Silva is basically like a computer in the first round, analyzing Okami's gameplan, calculating the distance, figuring out the best strategy, and then the round was over. The second round started, and Anderson Silva came out like he was on crack, doing the jitterbug, flipping out, lots of bouncing, lots of punches, and then eventually he just stood still, and let Okami punch him in the face a couple of times, while Silva just stared at him with the "You're about to die!" look. Silva knocked Okami on his ass with a big punch, and then just pounded on him until the referee was forced to stop the fight. Okami basically got destroyed in this fight. GREAT way to get revenge for the previous controversial loss to Okami (DQ due to an illegal upkick). So yeah, Anderson is the man, hands down, badass, and this was a fun fight.

      Well, this was pretty much what you would expect from an "Okami vs. Marquardt" fight, it was long, sort of boring, and lots of grappling without much actual offense, mostly just both guys trying to grind each other out. Personally, I thought Marquardt should have won the fight, especially after securing the takedown in the third round. I actually gave all 3 rounds to Marquardt, but it was really close. So yeah, whatever, they should learn how to finish people if they don't want to leave it in the hands of the judges.

      I would have liked to see Munoz finish this fight, but he was too set on trying to takedown Okami, and Okami stuffed ALL of his takedown attempts, which earned Okami tons of huge points, based on wrestling defense. I gave the second round to Munoz for outstriking Okami, but the other two rounds, I had Okami up on the scorecards for having better wrestling AND more active striking. Munoz didn't really do enough to even earn a split-decision in my opinion, I'm shocked that one of the judges gave the fight to Munoz. But yeah, Okami wins, and he deserves it, so there you go, I would like to see him eventually finish a fight though.

TKO (Doctor Stoppage)

      Okami's striking looked AWESOME in this fight, he completely picked apart Linhares in both rounds with his boxing skills, knocking him to the ground in the first round, and pounding on his face for a few minutes, and then cutting his eye badly in the second round, forcing the doctor to stop the fight due to how deep the cut was. Yushin Okami looked awesome in this fight.

      This was a pretty impressive fight, especially considering the fact that Chael Sonnen usually bores the shit out of me. Yushin Okami looked pretty bad though, but I'll give most of that credit to Chael Sonnen's insane pressure, and his wrestling dominance over Okami. Okami got slammed several times, he got hit several times, and he just got outclassed overall. Chael Sonnen wins via unanimous decision.

      This fight should have been a lot better than it was. Lister has crazy submission skills, but he spent the entire fight trying to pull guard, and shooting for HORRIBLY sloppy takedowns. Okami on the other hand, his wrestling was way too strong, and he beat up Lister with basic boxing skills. So in the end, Okami dominated all 3 rounds, and Lister spent the entire fight looking like an amateur. Sort of a shitty fight, but congrats to Okami for a respectable win.

KO (Knee)
8:00
      This fight was boring... Yushin Okami's fights are always boring though, so it's sort of what I expected... The first round was boring, Evan Tanner looked awkward while trying to strike with Okami, and I gave the first round to Okami for getting the better half of the striking... During the second round, Tanner still didn't look good, and Okami eventually got him in the clinch, threw a knee at the chin of Tanner, and knocked him out... Okami wins, but I still don't think he deserves a title shot yet, and I'm not sure why Evan Tanner even came back to be honest... He looked way too uncomfortable in there, even before the fight started...

      There for a while, when Jason MacDonald first came to the UFC, he was instantly one of my favorite fighters, but lately, he hasn't been looking so hot... Yushin Okami on the other hand, I've never liked that guy... He's basically just a great big 185 pound Japanese man, that will take you to the ground, and hold you there, eventually winning the fight by decision... That's BASICALLY what happened here... At one point, during I think the second round, Yushin Okami displayed some pretty solid ground & pound, but that's about it... Boring fight for the most part, but you can't say Yushin Okami isn't a tough challenge for most guys in the weight class, even though he's not exciting AT ALL... Yushin Okami wins by unanimous decision...

      Well, here we are with another card, with some great undercard fights, and then the main event fights just turn out to be disappointing... The Forrest Griffin fight wasn't nearly as explosive as I think most people probably expected, and then the Rich Franklin vs. Yushin Okami fight, was just plain boring... The first two rounds had Rich Franklin winning, by being a LITTLE bit more aggressive with the striking... The third round, Yushin Okami got the points, for taking Rich to the ground, and almost finishing him with a DEADLY looking Kimura... Ha, so yeah... I almost wanted to give the fight to Okami, since he's the only one that even came close to finishing the fight... But yeah, Rich Franklin wins by unanimous decision...

      Crap... Mike Swick was on his way up the rankings in the middleweight division, but this fight kind of killed it, especially after Swick's boring fight against David Loiseau... Basically, the first round of this fight, had Yushin Okami taking Swick to the ground, and almost taking him out with a kimura submission... Then the second round, was more of Okami beating up Swick, until the end of the round, when Swick started unloading on Okami with a flurry of punches, almost knocking him out, but not quite finishing it... Then the third round was more of Okami's ground & pound attack on Swick, leading to the unanimous decision victory for Yushin Okami... I feel bad for Mike Swick, since I like the guy, AND it was his hometown... I don't think either of these guys really deserves a title shot though...

      The first round was kind of boring, both guys boxing, and neither guy really looking very impressive. The rest of the fight consisted of Okami taking Singer to the ground, dominating him with his wrestling, and beating him up on the ground with big punches, until he eventually forced Singer to tapout in the third round, due to strikes. Solid win for Yushin Okami.

      I was kind of bored for the first two rounds of this fight, Okami was his usual self, and Starnes seemed to have the slightly better striking, so neither guy was really running away on the scorecards. In the third round though, Okami rocked Starnes early with a big punch, he chased him down, took him to the ground, got the mount, and punched Starnes in the head repeatedly until the referee stopped the fight. Okami is well on his way to having a nice little winning streak here.

     This fight was pretty decent, between a couple of UFC newcomers. Yushin Okami pretty much dominated the fight, taking Belcher to the ground repeatedly and beating on him. He never really came close to finishing the fight, but he did a hell of a job controlling Belcher for the entire 15 minutes. The best highlight from the fight though, was when Okami was on Belcher's back, while Belcher was standing, and Belcher flipped forward, just diving up into the air, and then down headfirst, and Okami held on, so they both slammed to the ground, and then Belcher laughed after realizing how he almost killed Okami. Pretty good fight overall, but yeah, clearly the decision goes to Okami.

Decision

      This match started out like a kick boxing match, where both fighters were on their feet, throwing knees & punches. For the most part, this match had a lot of back & forth swinging, and was a really interesting fight. Most NHB fights don't have a whole lot of action, since there is so much strategy involved, but this fight definitely had a lot of action punching. Okami spent the majority of the match standing up, raining punches down at Sakurai. At one point in time, Sakurai locked up Okami's arm, and twisted it like a pretzel twisting all of the joints, and still couldn't make him tap out. The announcers mentioned how Okami is double jointed, and he showed it in this fight. Okami ended up winning the match by decision, while Sakurai ended up the match with a very bloody & bruised face.

      This was a pretty good showing for a young Yushin Okami. He got knocked down in the first round with a big punch, but ended up getting on top and evening out the fight by the end of the round. The second round had Okami taking White to the ground, getting on top, dominating him, and beating the fuck out of him with huge punches, until after a couple of minutes of punching him in the face, White finally tapped out to strikes. Nice win for Yushin Okami.

      This was interesting, as Yushin Okami's Pride debut (sort of). He pretty much dominated Matsuda with his grappling skills, taking him down repeatedly, and eventually finish the fight with a series of punches that knocked Matsuda unconscious. Good win for Yushin Okami.
