Belcher v Okami set for UFC 155
The UFC has announced another significant middleweight bout with news of a rematch between Yushin Okami and Alan Belcher at UFC 155.
The pair first collided at UFC 62, in a bout won by Okami via unanimous decision. However, that fight acted as a UFC debut for both men, since when they have improved drastically as 185lb contenders.
Belcher, in particular, has thoughts of a title shot on his mind after four consecutive victories. His last outing against Rousimar Palhares was particularly impressive as he fought off the Brazilian's famed ground attack.
Okami is on a rebuilding mission after his championship defeat to Anderson Silva. His last outing witnessed a TKO victory over Buddy Roberts.
UFC 155 is headlined by the heavyweight title battle between Junior Dos Santos and Cain Velasquez.
