He says if he wins against Lister he will challenge Franklin.

He is cocky but he is not stupid. He fights overseas more than any other fighter in Pride, he knows he needs the experience and the respect of different organizations to go far in his career. For some reason Pride keeps saying that Lister is the second best grappler in the world. :dunno:
