Former UFC middleweight and current World Series of Fighting fighter Yushin Okami will be making the move down to the welterweight division.

Okami will be making the cut and dropping to 170 lbs. for the first time on WSOF, according to VP and matchmaker Ali Abdelaziz, who announced the move on MMAJunkie Radio.

Okami will fight on Oct. 17, which will probably be WSOF 24. Abdelaziz said that fans should Tweet him and offer up suggestions for his first welterweight opponent.
