By FCF Staff
Following his unanimous decision win over Alan Belcher at UFC 155, Yushin Okami won’t have to return to the U.S. for his next bout, as the Japanese middleweight will take on Hector Lombard, March 3rd in Saitama, Japan.
The fight will be part of the UFC on FUEL TV 8 card, which will be hosted by the Saitama Super Arena.
Okami ‘s (28-7) recent victory followed a stoppage win over Buddy Roberts in August, after the former number one contender was TKO’d by Tim Boetsch at UFC 144 in February.
Lombard (32-3) is also coming off a win, as the former Bellator champ quickly knocked out Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FX 6 in December, after losing by split decision to Boetsch in July.
The March 3rd event will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann.
