    I'll always remember him as one of the guys that had the opportunity and proved that Asian fighters have what it takes to be in the UFC. A tough soft spoken fighter, who's physical strength and toughness is his main asset. The guy who almost submit former MW champ Rich Franklin and delay the Anderson/Franklin rematch. The Tanner and Swick fights are my fave fights of him. The guy who got along and trained with "the controversial" Chael Sonnen. And a guy who's been dedicated to the UFC and his job and very rarely you hear him talk trash and speak his mind other than his training, fighting and working to the best fighter.

    War Yushin.

    That guy who looked terrified against silva at UFC 134, and could pull out a decision against any hype train he came up against.

    Nah, I'm kidding, terrible terrible cut, but I see him beating Vegh by the end of 2014.

    top 10 MW for so long and well deserved, also it was fun watching him derail hype trains. pissed about this cut i actually liked okami a lot. hopefully he finds his way back after getting some wins somewhere else or something.

    According to the Dana defenders on here, he's the guy who caused the UFC to be on the verge of bankruptcy because of all the cash they were pumping into his account. Meanwhile, we have Dana White gambling away 7 million dollars for teh lulz. Okami's contract must have been one of the most expensive of ALL TIME!

    a damn powerful grinder who could make what would normally be a boring fight, into something interesting in the way he dominated some of his opponents

    A respectful and honoured fighter that could beat anyone. The saddest and worst cut in UFC history.

    C'mon man, to be fair Okami's $42,000 base pay was really taking Dana to the cleaners
