"Okami is a really good neutralizer. If you're a real good striker, he can take you down, and ground and pound you. If you're a good grappler, he's hard to take down. He's going to be able to make your strong point not as strong. He has pretty good endurance. He keeps going a constant pace in a fight. I've heard he's very strong. He's real tall and he's a good counterpuncher. Overall, he's a real tough opponent, of course. I'm trying to take easy opponents right now. I'm not trying take a payday and just hang out there, I definitely want to climb the ladder and do something."
Brazilian jiu-jitsu player Dean Lister talks about his important middleweight bout on New Year's Eve weekend against Yushin Okami because no one else seems to be. Unless, of course, the complaints about having to watch CB Dolloway fight Mike Massenzio on the pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast instead, count. The showdown between Lister and Okami is not guaranteed to make the main card telecast.
