Metamoris 3 Advanced Class: Dean Lister's Straight Ankle Lock

Dean Lister shares of his mythical footlock lore in the lead up to Metamoris 3.

Metamoris 3 is set for March 29th and the much awaited rematch of the biggest upset in competition jiu jitsu history between Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie appears to finally be happening. The card is stacked full of grappling super fights between some of grappling's best.

You can purchase the $20 stream right here at and Bloody Elbow will have full coverage of the event.

Before Bravo and Gracie square off grappling fans will be treated to a no gi match between two of the most aggressive grapplers in the sport. Dean "The Boogey Man" Lister, a two time ADCC champion, will take on UFC and Strikeforce Light Heavyweight title contender Renato "Babalu" Sobral.

The 38-year-old Lister is fresh off a silver medal performance at the 2013 ADCCs and is a well rounded grappler, but he is particularity feared for his leg lock and heel hook attacks. In this video he will wax poetic on the body mechanics of footlocks.

The video comes from the BJJ Library, which has an excellent YouTube channel that the Advanced Class will most likely be drawing from again and is well worth a subscription.
