Each day, The MMA Corner will provide a recap of results, event announcements, fight matchups, and injuries/cancellations from throughout the world of MMA.

Alan Belcher and Yushin Okami slated for second fight at UFC 155

Alan Belcher and Yushin Okami will meet once again, this time at UFC 155 in Las Vegas.

Belcher and Okami met in their respective UFC debuts with Okami taking the decision win at UFC 62 which also took place in Las Vegas.

Okami is currently coming off of a win over Buddy Roberts at UFC 150 after dropping two-straight fights, one to current middleweight champion, Anderson Silva and the other a shocking come-from-behind win by Tim Boetsch.

Belcher was expected to fight Vitor Belfort at UFC 153 next month, but he sustained an injury and Belfort was also pulled from the fight which forced Belcher to look for another fight later this year. Belcher is currently on a four-fight win streak with his most recent win coming against Rousimar Palhares.

UFC 155 takes place on Dec. 9 in Las Vegas at a venue to be determined.
