Branch and Taylor to Battle for Middleweight Title in June

By FCF Staff

Yushin Okami appeared to have little difficulty in scoring a victory in his WSOF debut last night, and the powerful Judoka has been rewarded with a headlining spot as a result.

After Saturday’s WSOF 9 card, which saw Okami tap out Svetlozar Savov in round two, the promotion announced the UFC vet will headline its first show in Japan. The card is set to take place on August 2nd, however, no location has been sent.

Okami’s opponent has yet to be determined.

WSOF also announced that Jesse Taylor will fight David Branch for the promotion’s inaugural middleweight title on June 21st, in San Jose, California.

Reigning featherweight champ, Georgi Karakhanyan, will look to defend the title versus Rick Glenn at WSOF 10 as well.
