There was a lot of speculation that the UFC would let middleweight contender Yushin Okami go due to his not so exciting fight style. The last fight on his contract was at UFC 77 against Jason Macdonald. After a month or so without any word of what was going on with Okami MMA Junkie got word that he has in fact resigned with the promotion.
MMAjunkie.com today heard from UFC Vice President of Talent Relations Joe Silva, who stated that Okami has inked a new deal with the organization.
The length of the contract and financial terms of the deal were not released, and Okami could not be reached for comment.
This could possibly set up a rematch with Anderson Silva if he gets past Dan Henderson in March.
