I'm sorry Dean, but you will not be fighting for the title in 2-3 fights even if you beat Okami(you won't). Maia, Marquardt(who you lost to), Bisbing, and Thales Leites are all ahead of you in the middleweight division. Hell, I'd put Jason Macdonald in front of him as well. Could you imagine what Anderson Silva would do to Dean Lister?
Anyways, I'll be traveling to a meeting in the morning so I won't be able to blog any until around noon(EST) on tomorrow. However, if you run across any interesting pieces of information feel free to shoot me an email.
