Interesting...Okami is on the undercard...
Ok , i'd say this is a bit surprising...but at the same time...not.
Surprising because Okami is
1 - far from being a noob , he's a veteran of the sport
2 - not a can...
3 - legit contender
4 - (and of course has a solid record)
But i think he's a bit plagued with the "machida syndrome" if you know what i mean. I'll admit it...I think Machida is boring , but ! so is Arona...& Sherk...i'm not saying they're always boring , but they are more than not...
Having said that...I have to say that whether they're boring or not , i , as a fan of the sport find it inacceptable to treat a guy like this...It makes you wonder why they hired him in the first place.
Remember how they got rid of Sobral ? (it was bullshit)...when they're tired of a certain fighter , they'll indirectly find a way to get rid of him , and whenever they can't fault him (like they did for sobral)... they either put them on an undercard or , they keep feeding the guy opponents after opponents (when other fighters get a free ticket for a shot at the belt )...
