Former UFC contender Yushin Okami’s World Series of Fighting debut will come against Svetlozar Savov at WSOF 9, officials announced recently.
“I was already excited for World Series of Fighting 9, but the addition of Yushin Okami against Svetlozar Savov to our live NBCSN broadcast leaves no question that this is the best card we’ve ever put together,” World Series of Fighting president Ray Sefo said. “This card now has some of the world’s most established talent, as well as some of the top up-and-coming names in the sport. This truly is a card you do not want to miss.”
UFC fighter Sean Strickland has been chosen to replace Tor Troeng and face Bubba McDaniel at UFC 171, while Piotr Hallman and Yves Edwards has been added to UFC 173.
