Shocker! Okami vs Lister sucked donkey cocks

Everyone was flipping out when they learned that Yushin Okami vs Dean Lister was stuffed into the prelims, while CB Dollaway was not only on the card, but sandwiched between Rampage / Wanderlei and Mir / Nog. Cooler heads were quick to note that Okami and Lister are both known to stink up the ring, and if the fight was any good it would probably get stuffed onto the card somewhere.

Well, it didn’t, and that’s because it did by all accounts stink. I actually have to wonder what the fuck Joe Silva was thinking when he booked this one up. Did he just figure why waste an entertaining fighter on Okami? Here’s Sherdog’s description of round two and three. Notice how many times the word ‘boo’ is used:

Round 2
Head kick by Lister misses and Okami is pinned against the fence. They separate. Left hand by Okami lands. A takedown by Lister is stuffed. Lister lays on his back to try and lure Okami into his guard. The crowd boos. He does it again. More boos. They’re up and clinch along fence. Lister pulls guard. Lister applies an omaplata but Okami escapes. Okami lands three hard punches from on top. Lister scrambles out of danger. He tries to pull guard again. Three more hard right hands from Okami connect. The round ends as the arena showers the Octagon with boos. 10-9 Okami.

Round 3
Lister comes out firing, but misses wildly. Lister is trying more takedowns but his shots are telegraphed. Lister tries pulling guard again. Finally he successfully pulls guard, but Okami lands two more right hands. Very tedious fight to watch. The crowd is restless and are begging Referee Herb Dean to stand the fighters. Okami lands a decent right and left. Lister is unable to pull any submissions. Dean stands them. Lister misses badly with looping punches. Lister tries another single leg. It’s stuffed. 10 seconds left and the crowd boos. 10-9 Okami.

You can pretty much guarantee that Dean Lister is out of a job, but what the fuck is the UFC supposed to do with guys like Okami? The fight was by all accounts a one sided drubbing, but it still sucked.
