The UFC is back in Japan for its latest event, which will go down on Friday night at the Saitama Super Arena.
In the main event, light-heavyweight contender Ovince Saint Preux will battle former middleweight contender, Yushin Okami.
Okami is returning to the UFC for the first time since 2013, when he was stopped by “Jacare” Souza. The Judoka’s departure surprised many at the time, since Okami had won three in a row prior to the defeat. OSP was scheduled to fight “Shogun” Rua on Friday, but the latter recently had to withdraw due to a knee injury.
The media day for UFC FN 117 was held today, and you can watch OSP and Okami faceoff below. In addition, co-headliners Claudia Gadelha and Jessica Andrade are featured in the highlights, as are Gokhan Saki and Henrique da Silva.
