Alan Belcher, Yushin Okami Set For Rematch At UFC 155

Back at UFC 62, Yushin Okami defeated Alan Belcher in the UFC debuts for both fighters.

Now, flash-forward a few years, and the two are set to tangle once again, as MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani is reporting Belcher and Okami will square off at UFC 155.

The card takes place December 29 from Las Vegas. The event is quickly filling up in terms of fights.

Belcher (18-6) was scheduled to face Vitor Belfort in October, but Belfort instead signed on to meet Jon Jones later this month. It has since been revealed that Belcher suffered a fractured spine and was in question to even make the card.

Okami (27-7) snapped a two-fight losing skid by besting Buddy Roberts earlier this year. “Thunder” had lost to Anderson Silva in a UFC middleweight title contest and Tim Boetsch prior to defeating Roberts.
