Very surprising being he has a big following in Japan. Not sure what Dana is thinking here

Wow!… I’m surprised. I’ve always tuned in for Okami’s fights. He hasn’t been taking shots as well as he used to, but he’s also been eating shots from destroyers. Maybe he can beat David Branch for that WSOF title…

always rooted for him.. but he just wasn’t a top tier fighter.. He just couldn’t execute any kind of game plan.. I hate to say it, but i’m not that surprised.

Yea, big surprise…

Only surprise is that it took this long.

I’m sure he’s a good guy and could kick 89% of the worlds populations ass (myself included), but he’s only hung on this long because he’s Japanese.

f****** fighter affirmative action.

He just beat Alan Belcher AND Hector Lombard and he couldn’t execute any kind of game plan…?

I’m very disappointed in this. He was my favorite Japanese fighter and tuned into all of his fights.

I bet he didn’t bring Dana Flowers.

His nose probably wasn’t brown enough

Yeah, sadly he’s gone the way of Fitch. The UFC is really sending a message to the fighters that if you don’t put on really exciting fights, you’re time is limited…

Not sure how he couldn’t execute a game plan when he goes 13-5 in the ufc and is still ranked.

Rooted for the guy and am disappointed at the news. probably making too much money

I thought when he lost to Tim Boetsch that his career was in jeopardy. It’s one thing to be ranked top 10, but when you’re given a title shot and contender shots and you fall short everytime, then you better have an exciting style in the ring or exciting personality outside of the ring, and Okami has neither. As David Spade from SNL used to say BUH-BYE…

Great point about beating Belcher & Lombard. I totally forgot about those.

The Lombard fight was a split decision, and Belcher was a unanimous one, but neither were fights that had anything to remember. Except maybe Lombard sucking (because we all expected a little more out of him at the time).

The loss to Boetsch was where I lost any ideas of him becoming great. Getting blasted by the same ugly awkward uppercut 3 or 4 times is just not becoming of a professional fighter.

I agree he’s not marketable, or very exciting to watch as everyone has said. Guys like Wanderlei and Leben can keep their job because they are extremely exciting to watch.
