I am hearing rerports that a fight between middleweights Yushin Okami and Dean Lister is going to take place at UFC 92. The reports come from many internet sites such as MMAweekly and MMAmania. Yushin Okami is really the number one contender for Anderson Silva’s belt and a win over Dean Lister would cerainly assure him a title shot. Okami was expected to fight Silva for the title in October, but an injury forced him to withdraw and then set up the fight between Silva and Cote at UFC 90.
Dean Lister is a talented jiu jitsu fighter who is also coming off of a injury, but is ready to go at UFC 92. He is 4-1 in the UFC with his sole loss coming to Nathan Marquardt at UFC Fight Night 8 nearly 2 years ago. He is coming off of a win over Jeremy Horn at the TUF 7 Finale. This should be a good fight that shows something about jockeying for position and a title shot.
