The main takeaway from Okami being let go is that Zuffa has given up on the Asian market. If they believed in any way they could get a nice foothold there they would have kept him.
If Dana was 100% truthful he'd say: "Jacare is, fuck, hey listen, the kid is an animal, OK? He beat Okami who is a fuckin awesome fighter. He's not in the UFC anymore because we don't care about the Asian market , but Okami, fuck, he would have derailed half of our MW contenders if we kept him."
Then a week later someone asks Dana how he feels about Bellator having a top 10 MW (Okami): "Who? Okami coudln't beat anyone. Look, we got Tim Boetsch. Go watch the Boetsch fight and tell me we don't have all the MW talent. Jacare killed Okami, he's not a top 10 fighter."
