Omigawa and ''Kid'' Yamamoto set for UFC 126: Silva vs. BelfortPosted on December 22, 2010, 06:34 AM by Jamie Kennedy
Japanese MMA veterans Michihiro Omigawa and Norifumi ''Kid'' Yamamoto are set to feature at UFC 126 on February 5th 2011. Omigawa was initially rumoured to make his return to the UFC around March, but has now officially been announced to take on Chad Mendes sooner than expected.
Meanwhile Norifumi ''Kid'' Yamamoto will also be looking to impress at UFC 126, where he will take on Demetrious Johnson in his UFC debut, in a bantamweight affair. Omigawa and Yamamoto are slated for the preliminary card, but if there is a live prelims special on Spike TV for UFC 126 these two bouts will be likely to get the slot.
Current UFC 126 card looks like this:
Norifumi ''Kid'' Yamamoto vs Demetrious Johnson
Mike Pierce vs Kenny Robinson
