UFC Middleweight Yushin Okami defeated Dean Lister via Unanimous Decision at UFC 92 this past Saturday night and is now looking towards getting the title shot that he never got at UFC 82 because of an injury.
Okami is riding a three fight win streak in the Octagon after losing to former champion Rich Franklin.
Anderson Silva and Yushin Okami have fought each other in the past with Okami holding a win over Silva due to an illegal kick on the ground which disqualified Silva.
Silva has been looking to avenge that loss for a long time. UFC President Dana White would not confirm Silva’s next opponent as it has been rumored that Thales Leites would get the nod.
