I really hate to say it...cuz I'm not trying to provoke a huge argument, but why is it that someone like say....Leben can win his fight in DOMINATING fashion (probably one of the cleanest ko's in recent memory) and still get bashed to no end in other topics, but someone like Lister who obviously just wasn't at his best tonight, constantly gets nut-hugged? I love Lister. Don't get me wrong. He has all the potential and skill in the world to be a great possible champ someday. But tonight just wasn't his night. I'm not too familiar with the guy he was fighting, but I believe he lucked out by not being handed a UFC veteran. He really needs to step up his game in order to impress me next time out. That fight was just about Rashad Evans caliber, except with at least a COUPLE attempts to finish.
By the way, I realize Sasaki (Lister's opponent) is an MMA veteran. But UFC is the big stage. And some people have trouble making that transition.
