"Thunder" and "Lightning" will collide at Saitama Super Arena, as Yushin "Thunder" Okami (28-7 MMA, 12-4 UFC) meets Hector "Lightning" Lombard (32-3-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at UFC on FUEL TV 8.

UFC officials announced the booking late Monday night.

Featuring a light heavyweight headliner between Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann, UFC on FUEL TV 8 takes place March 3 (but airs live in the U.S. on March 2 due to the time difference) at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The main card airs on FUEL TV following prelims on Facebook.

Lombard, who migrated to the UFC as the Bellator MMA middleweight champion, saw an incredible 25-fight unbeaten streak snapped at the hands of Tim Boetsch at this past July's UFC 149 event. He rebounded with an impressive first-round knockout of grappling ace Rousimar Palhares at December's UFC on FX 6 event.

Okami brings a two-fight win streak to the bout. Following back-to-back losses to Tim Boetsch and Anderson Silva (in a failed bid for the UFC's middleweight title), Okami has since bouned back with wins over Alan Belcher and Buddy Roberts.

With the new booking, the latest UFC on FUEL TV 8 card includes:

Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann
Mark Hunt vs. Stefan Struve
Hector Lombard vs. Yushin Okami
Takanori Gomi vs. Diego Sanchez
Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Dong Hyun Kim
Mizuto Hirota vs. Rani Yahya
Riki Fukuda vs. Brad Tavares
Bryan Caraway vs. Takeya Mizugaki
Cristiano Marcello vs. Kazuki Tokudome
Alex Caceres vs. Kyung Ho Kang
Marcelo Guimaraes vs. Hyun Gyu Lim

That's a sick free card and I love how quickly they are moving Lombard along. A win here and he should be back in a contender fight.

Yeah I don't get it either. Just like I didn't get Munoz vs Weidman or Ace vs Cung Le on FUEL. I don't know if it has to do with attempting to build up FUEL and get it in more homes but it just doesn't seem very smart to have those fights on FUEL right now. I didn't understand why a Japan card would be on FUEL to begin with.

I didn't even think of that. I would hope that wouldn't be a factor. Would be pretty lame.

Yikes I don't like Okami's chances here if he doesn't get it to the ground or cage.

Sweet card though.

more PPV points for Lombard Laughing

Good fight though but see it going the way of Lombard via TKO.
