Lister was stuffed by Okami in all of his shoot attempts and he used his size and strength to fort any of the Boogeyman’s pull guard attempts. In the end Okami won another boring fight 30 to 27. Lister is one of the worst strikers in mixed martial arts and he kept on missing with wild looping shots.
