Hey guys. Haven't posted on here since James died on Good Times (yes, that long) but I wanted to share this photo a friend emailed me. With all the TLI stuff going down I couldn't figure out if it was funny or tasteless. MODS: If this is crossing some fanpost rule or guideline feel free to delete!

I know it's a few days old but I haven't seen anyone post it. How does this even happen? http://twitter.com/#!/MiguelTorresMMA

Add grappling wizard, Dean Lister, to the list of people who James Toney has allegedly "threatened" with submissions in training: PC: You can plead the fifth on this, but from what I understand, he not only caught Mo in a submission, but he almost pulled something out on you as well. DL:I won't plead the fifth, man. It's actually rewarding when my students start picking up little things that I've been showing them. What happened was, I was trying to pass his guard. He didnt' pull guard or anything like that. I'm not going to say how we got to the ground because I don't want to give anything that he's going to try to do away. We were going over a few things and I passed his guard and I got a mount and he turned and like grabbed my foot. I'm lucky he didn't break it. He was close to breaking it. I think James has to learn not to tweak submissions in training. I mean, I guess he didn't tweak it, but he was really waiting on a tap. But he landed like a toe hold, and I didn't really get to see exactly what he was doing because my back was turned, but he twisted it pretty good.
