Yushin Okami talks UFC 122, reveals he has not been promised a title shot

    They mite not have told him but honestly who else would get a title shot if Okami beats Nate, there is nobody in the division who is even in title contention part from Nate and Okami so there’s no way the winner isn’t getting a title shot

    maybe because the whole world knows? doesn’t the PPV hype up say it? lol

    I don’t think that it would be smart to just assume that you are that much stronger than your opponent. That is what Rich Franklin did against Silva in their first fight. Hope he has a plan B.

    yeah agreed, the winner should definitely get a title shot, and if you ask me Okami is long overdue one…… I hope he can pull it off, if anyone deserves it it’s Yushin!

    Dana ‘The white Don King’ White probably realises he wont make enough money from PPV buys if Okami is the #1 contender, but as i said before Okami and Nate are deserving of it, and both of them are kinda quiet, and wont talk trash to hype a fight or anything like that….

    Lets Go Yushin!!!!!!

    Yea I’m definitely pulling for Yushin. Only because I’m racist haha. No just kidding. Seriously it does kind of seem like he should have had a title shot by now. Things are so jacked up in the MW division because Dana wants to see different people fight Silva. At one time I strongly believed Nate and Dan deserved title shots after their wins against Maia and Bisping respectively. Someone correct me if I’m wrong there. It sucks how some things are run now. I really hope the winner of this fight regardless of who it is gets the shot.

    Okami has been in the UFC for like 4 years. It’s about time he gets a title shot. I don’t care if he’s not marketable.

    only way they can market that fight is that Okami was the last person to defeat Silva and here’s his chance to redeem himself, fight Chael again, and then superfight with GSP or move to light heavyweight division

    “DQ due to Illegal kick.” Ya thats a win in my books.
