(‘I’m so mad I could pull guard right now.’)
There’s no getting around it, Dean Lister had a bad, bad night against Yushin Okami at UFC 92. His offense consisted of pulling guard, a few token efforts at striking, and takedown attempts that only became more half-hearted as the fight wore on. Not surprisingly, he lost the decision, was showered with boos from the fans, and got his release from the UFC afterwards.
Now Lister has posted a message to the UG apologizing to his fans and teammates:
Listen I had a very poor performance my last fight. Truth is that I let my team and my gym, my friends and definitely myself down for this fight. Its not only that I lost but I really showed a poor performance. I had a much better showing against Arona (even though that was only primarily a grappling fight that I lost) even in Pride who is a better fighter than Okami for sure. Things just didnt come together for me this fight. I trained so, so hard, I really trained hard but it didnt work out.
Nice, right? He owns up to his poor performance, apologizes to the people he let down, but it doesn’t stop there:Read More ADD COMMENTS (52) DIGG THIS
