Hector Lombard, Yushin Okami Set For UFC On Fuel TV 8 From Japan

Hector Lombard will look to inch closer to a UFC middleweight title shot when he takes on Yushin Okami in March. The bout was made official for UFC on Fuel TV 8 late Monday night by promotion officials.

Lombard (32-3-1) entered the UFC last year, but had his 25-fight unbeaten streak snapped by Tim Boetsch. The former Olympian rebounded to defeat Rousimar Palhares to close out 2012.

Okami (28-7) has won 12 of his 16 UFC bouts, including two straight over Alan Belcher and Buddy Roberts. In 2011, Okami faced Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight title, but was defeated.
