  4. Chad says:

    hopefully Luiz Cane doesnt pressure him… Okami is my fav fighter, has been for awhile.. but the dude does not react well when he gets pressured… dominated Boestch for 2 rounds… then he said fuck this, and just steamrolled right through Okami… Lets go Okami, get some nice finishes, and ull be back in the title hunt in no time…

  5. WAR OKAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!
