Belcher slips on a head kick attempt and Okami pounces. He has Belcher clinched against the fence. He tries to trip Belcher to the mat, but ends up on the bottom after a scramble. Belcher almost catches him in a guillotine choke on the way down. Okami is now in top position unloading some ground-and-pound. Okami transitions to side control.


Second verse, same as the first: Okami tries to trip him to the mat, Belcher fails on a guillotine choke on the way down and Okami ends up on top. The ref stands them up, despite the fact Okami was in a dominant side control position. Okami drags him back to the canvas. They get stood up once again. Crowd boos out of boredom.
