In the second bout of the UFC 150 main card, Yushin Okami used his strong grappling game to take down and wear out Buddy Roberts on his way to a second-round TKO victory. Roberts was actually doing quite well on the feet, but Okami showed off his versatility by taking the fight to where he had the biggest advantage. The finish came at 3:05 of the second round.

Okami got Roberts to the mat in the first round and eventually got to mount. Roberts rolled over and was eating a ton of punches, but made it out of the round. The exact same thing happened in the second round as well though, and it seems like Roberts just wilted when he got stuck underneath Okami again. It wasn't the most overwhelming stoppage ever, but it got the job done.

What was the high point of the fight?

There really wasn't one. Maybe the drama of Herb Dean deciding whether to call the fight near the end of the first round. But that's about it.

Where do they go from here?

Okami picked up his first win in almost two years, something he badly needed. It wasn't all that relevant though, so I'm not sure where they go with him. A bout with Rousimar Palhares doesn't make much sense now. Okami vs. fellow UFC 150 winner Jake Shields does though.

Robert was just in over his head in only his second UFC fight. He was originally supposed to face Chris Camozzi, and he'll either face him or another mid-level middleweight next.

Watch now, later, or never?

Later. It was a nice grappling display by Okami, but nothing super exciting happened. You shouldn't exactly feel guilty if you skip it completely.
