Yushin Okami Hoping To Impress At UFC on FUEL TV 8
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.28.2013

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Yushin Okami (28-7 MMA, 12-4 UFC) said that he is hoping to impress UFC officials when he faces Hector Lombard at UFC on FUEL TV 8. The card takes place Sunday at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. It airs on Saturday in the US due to the time difference. Okami last fought in Japan at UFC 144, where he lost by third round TKO to Tim Boetsch. Here are highlights:

On Jon Fitch's release: "I was surprised they released Jon Fitch, but of course the UFC has their own thoughts. That's nothing that I should be worried about or be concerned about. I only need to fight my own fight and worry about myself."

On if he'll get another shot at Anderson Silva: "I still feel Anderson Silva is quite far away, timewise. But a lot of good fighters are in the middleweight division, so I have to win against them, too, before I reach the championship title match."

On his future: "I'm very motivated. There's a lot of good fighters in the middleweight class right now, and I think I have to win one bout at a time. Of course, my next bout is with Hector, and I think it's a big test for me to win this match."
