How do you see Okami from a technical standpoint?

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.

I think I am the only person picking Lister to win this, i may be a slow paced fight..but I think Dean can control the ground game and get the UD

I’m trying to take easy opponents right now.


What is dean talking about? Okami is not an easy opponent. I think lister meant to say he isnt trying to take easy opponents right now.

Okami wins by decision.

Lister can choke him out late, the only problem is okami will be way bigger than him in my estimation

Lister is a good technician, but this is mma and a good BJJ game is not enough. I got Okami by ko/tko in the 2nd frame, he's bigger and more well rounded. I think there are a lot of good (interesting, not necessarily favourable) match-ups for Lister at MW, but not in the top 5. The smart and successful fighters are often the ones who don't talk trash before a fight, I see that as a sign of weakness. With this win I hope Okami gets the shot he deserves at Anderson.

I cant beleive this is not on the main card; I hope they show this fight sometime during the ppv

Okami will overpower him like he did mcdonald and pound him out.

I hope they show it even if it's "boring". I still really want to see this.

Maybe they're hoping the hardcores will buy it off them anyway. Which is true because I will.
