Okami was supposed to fight Silva at UFC 90, but broke his hand during training, that's why Cote was given the shot. Okami fought at UFC 92 and with that victory, was guaranteed a title shot by Dana.
Okami is 7-1 in the UFC with his only loss being a decision to Rich Franklin. He has since won 3 fights in a row.
