Middleweight Yushin Okami return to the Octagon on August 11 in hopes of snapping a two-fight losing streak by taking out Luiz Cane at UFC 150. Okami strung together a trio of wins in 2010 to earn a title-shot but was stopped with strikes by Anderson Silva, following the loss up with a TKO defeat to Tim Boetsch in a bout at UFC 144 he’d been dominating prior to the fight-ending sequence.
Okami holds an overall record of 26-7 with wins over Alan Belcher, Nate Marquardt, and Mark Munoz. Comparably, Cane is 12-4 with knockouts of Eliot Marshall, Jason Lambert, and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou. However, he has also endured his share of losing as of late, dropping three of his last four fights with the defeats all involving a TKO finish.
