I thought he proved it by manhandling Kendall Grove. Nobody has had it easy with Kendall Grove, aside from that flash KOs.

Okami will never see a main card again if he loses this fight. I see it as being very competitive though, hopefully with Boetsch getting the W.

 This should be a good fight but I think Okami takes it. I don't think Boetsch can bully and take Okami down and Okami is the better striker. I do think it will be a close competitive fight though.

Huge fight for Tim. Let's see if he's a legit top10 MW in the world... but even if he he is, is nowhere near Silva's level.

Okami is way more technical striker, but Boestch has got some pretty heavy hands tho. I can see Okami TKOing or grinding a victory, but if Boestch is able to manhandle Okami like he has been doing at 185, it's gonna be intresting..
I'm looking forward for a war and this is a FOTN contender for sure!

Not bad but I'd have liked to see Belcher or Maia vs Okami.
