Former middleweight contender Yushin Okami has been cut in the UFC after his TKO loss to Ronaldo Souza

This perhaps is the most surprising of UFC’s roster cuts since the promotion released welterweight contender John Fitch early this year. Officers of UFC have confirmed in MMAjunkie.com that they have released former middleweight contender Yushin Okami.

Okami, who was branded by UFC president Dana White as the best fighter to come out of Japan has been a top ranked fighter since he joined UFC in 2006. He won his debut fight with a decision against Alan Belcher in the preliminary card of UFC 69. Throughout his seven years in the UFC, Okami compiled a record of 18 wins and 5 losses. His impressive resume includes wins over the likes of Mark Munoz, Mike Swick and former Strikeforce champion Nate Marquardt.

The 32 year old Japanese has been riding on a three fight winning streak before losing by 1st round TKO to Ronaldo Souza in his most recent outing.
