I got Stan, Sanchez, Okami, Stun Gun and Yahya.

Okami will take Lombard down in the opening minute, he will have no gas by round 2.

I believe Lombard will be exhausted by the second round if he is taken to the mat. He's never faced a wrestler with the strength, technique and tenacity of Okami. He will not stop until Lombard is on his back, and when he is, he will struggle to get back up.

Granted Lombard has strong hips, typical of a high level judoka, and likely has decent TDD as a result. However, we have not really seen this TDD tested by someone of the caliber of Okami. Not only that, but we have not seen how his cardio holds up in a grapple heavy fight. With all that muscle to get oxygen to, I can't see him outlasting Okami, so as the fight goes on the TD becomes easier.

On the other side, Okami may never get that first TD, forcing him to stand. This is not ideal given Lombard's power. Okami's striking has been a little hit and miss in recent fights, e.g- looked great against Boetsch (until the KO), then not so great against Roberts. This inconsistency could be his eventual downfall in this fight. On a good day, Okami can hang with Lombard on the feet, especially since Lombard often sacrifices technique for power, loading up and telegraphing his punches. If Okami is not bringing his A game in the stand up, it could be a very short fight.



Although a lot of this is speculative, but I believe given the odds Okami is definitely worth a bet.
