UFC on Versus Betting Odds & Predictions Yushin Okami vs Mark Munoz: The UFC is back in action tonight with an 11 fight card at the San Diego Sports Arena in California. The event, which will be broadcast live on Versus at 9:00pm ET, features a main event clash between rising light heavyweight Jon Jones and veteran fighter Vladimir Matyushenko. Tonight's undercard is highlighted by a middleweight battle between Yushin Okami and Mark Munoz. UFC on Versus Betting Odds & Predictions at Bodog.com have Okami listed as a -200 moneyline favorite.
Yushin Okami enters this evening's dust up with Munoz having won four of his last five fights, with the only loss coming against top contender Chael Sonnen. The Kanagawa, Japan native last fought Lucio Linhares in March when he scored a win via TKO stoppage.
Okami, who possesses a 25-5 professional record and 8-2 mark in the UFC, could move himself closer to a title shot with a victory over Munoz as he already has wins over talents such as Alan Belcher and Mike Swick.
The 29 year old is not looking past the former wrestling champ, though, who he characterized as "an aggressive and powerful fighter."
Mark Munoz, like Okami, is trying to work his way into the middleweight title picture after stringing together three consecutive wins. The California native took care of Kendall Grove in his last outing, overwhelming the former TUF winner with a second round TKO to improve his overall record to 8-1.
Munoz, who earned All America honors at Oklahoma State, pulled no punches in regard to what this evening's fight means to him.
"This is going to be a great fight," Munoz said. "[And] it is the biggest fight of my career."
Fight Prediction: This should be an exciting fight as both fighters are well rounded and not shy about mixing it up. Munoz has the advantage on the ground and is a great value as +160 moneyline dog.
