Mark Munoz vs. Yushin Okami on tap for “UFC on Versus 2”

Another good fight has been added to the UFC’s second event on Versus as The Philippine Wrecking Machine Mark Munoz will take on the always tough Yushin Okami.

The news of the bout comes courtesy of a recent report from MMAWeekly.

Munoz is coming off of an exciting fight against Kendall Grove at UFC 112 that saw him escaping numerous submission attempts before brutally finishing Grove off in the second round. The fight earned Munoz a 75,000 dollar bonus for the Fight of The Night. Munoz’s only loss in MMA came in his UFC debut against Matt Hamill, since then he has won three straight fights.

Okami recently defeated Brazilian Lucio Linhares, showing much improved striking as he opened up Linhares with brutal strikes. Okami was originally scheduled to face Anderson Silva at UFC 90 but a broken hand caused him to pull out. Since then, Okami has defeated Dean Lister and Linhares, but suffered a tough loss to Chael Sonnen. Another victory of two and Okami could find himself in a potential fight for the middleweight title.

UFC on Versus 2 will happen on August 1 and will emanate from the EngerySolutions Arena in Salt lake City, Utah.

    Mark Munoz is a warrior. His last fight made a fan out of me but Yushin is a considerable talent. This one is a good supporting content fight for Versus 2. Bound to be good

    you reckon this will be on the main card? Yushin doesnt get much love nowadays.
    Mark has done well to come back from that brutal knock out, i enjoy watching him

    After his last fight, (and Anderson’s last one) I think the UFC brass is looking at Okami a little differently. I not only expect this to be on the main card but I think were gonna start seeing a push from Joe and Dana for Okami to to get a title shot if he wins this one.

    I am actually looking forward to this fight. Munoz is always exciting and Okami definitely looked good in his last fight. If this isn’t on the main card I’d be shocked

    Random news!

    DW said winner of Koscheck vs Daley gets title shot at GSP.

    Keep building GSP up ufc by sending him good strikers who can not defend the takedown.
    GSP will be keeping his belt as long as Silva doesn’t fight him.
