Former Contender Yushin Okami To Face Luiz Cane At UFC 150

After a devastating loss to Tim Boetsch in his native country of Japan, Yushin Okami will look to rebound at UFC 150 against Luiz Cane.

UFC officially announced UFC 150 as taking place on August 11 from Denver’s Pepsi Center.

Along with Okami-Cane, Thiago Tavares vs. Dennis Hallman was also made official.

Okami (26-7) has lost two straight after compiling a 6-1 record in the UFC. “Thunder” earned a title shot vs. Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight belt, but was defeated via second round TKO last year.

Cane (12-4) is moving down to the middleweight division after a 1-3 record in his previous four fights. His lone win since 2009 came against Eliot Marshall.
