Yushin Okami Re-signs With The UFC

The UFC has re-signed middleweight contender Yushin Okami to a new contract:

After his last fight and his contract expiration, rumors circulated that Okami would appear on K-1's New Year's Eve card, but his new deal obviously puts those rumors to rest.

No word has come from the UFC or Okami's camp about the details surrounding the new deal or when he might fight again.

The UFC needs all the top middleweights they can get and Okami would do well against Cote or the winner of Leites vs Marqardt. Being a fan of Okami, this is good news.
