Gun Beats Hammer for Ex-UFC Fighter Dean Lister (VIDEO)

Dean Lister UFC Fighter DGU Intruder

Dean Lister was a successful UFC fighter who started fighting as a boy in Panama. He speaks four languages, has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and won several martial arts championships. As you’d expect, he can handle himself fairly well.

He came home one evening last week to find a strange man in his kitchen who was a nearly naked and filmed the incident.

Lister allowed the intruder to continue to rummage around in the kitchen while he questioned him. That was a mistake as the Intruder was actually searching for a weapon. He picked up a large claw hammer and started to advance on Lister.


The person was tremendous sketchy and instructed Lister he thought the house was a church — however when Lister continued to press, the person picked up a hammer in a really threatening method.

“Off digital camera, I drew a sidearm and he stopped advancing towards me,” Lister mentioned.

“I LET him escape together with his life by a window. Cops mentioned I used to be legally good if I killed him.”

Lister was armed, and drew his pistol. He refrained from shooting the intruder, who fled. Lister determined later that a considerable amount of money had been stolen. Lister issued a public request for help to identify and find the intruder:

“At 8PM pacific time, here in San Diego I walked in on a meth head ripping me off. At the end of the video, he raises a pipe at me, off camera I drew a sidearm and he stopped advancing toward me. I LET him escape with his life through a window. Cops said I was legally good if I killed him. But is that what I want? In the end, he stole plenty of $$$$$ from me. This video is for “hopefully” anyone who knows who this meth head is. White dude, skinny, methe’d out with his tattoos. Police are on it but if anyone knows who he is please help me,,, thank you very much”

    WTH, dude’s in your house and the first thing you do is pull out the cell phone to record? That’s nuts, what happens if Mr Creepy meth-head has an accomplice? What if instead of a hammer/pipe he picked up a gun? To many things can wrong to confront this a-hole with only a cell phone in hand.

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      No kidding.
      This looks like a total pre-set film clip.
      “Hi, tattoo guy. Pretend like you’re ripping off some random crap from my total shit bed of a home. Yeah, I know, it looks like I live in a pile of garbage, but it’s comfortable…”

        “Yeah, I know, it looks like I live in a pile of garbage, but it’s comfortable…”

        And that was *kitchen*.

        Successful guy, speaks 4 languages, and lives like that. Is it a Panama thing?

        1. avatar neiowa says:

          Another Obumer dreamer. Speaking 4 versions of Spanglish is not 4 languages and in any case, counts for diddly squat.

        2. avatar Pat says:

          I assume the fact a meth head had been rummaging through his house for an undetermined period of time might also explain the home’s cluttered state…

    2. avatar JoelT1 says:

      He called the cops before confronting him. Cops arrived just after he escaped. I believe Dean was armed with a pistol when he confronted him. He just didnt have it drawn. My guess is the guy looked scrawny and acted confused. It evoked sympathy rather than retaliation. The other thing I noticed is that there was a rifle case at the guys feet. I dont know if anything was in there, but it could have been a lot worse than pipe.

      It also appears the guy has been identified by redditors:

      His name is Joshua Harryman. You can find his Facebook page. It hasnt been updated in awhile and the pictures are before all the drugs took their toll. You can tell its him by the tattoos. He looks down right scary, lots of muscle, no eyebrows. Obviously not a stand-up citizen even then. I tried to copy and paste a link but my phone wont let me paste into this textbox.

      Once in a while there is a person who doesn’t follow the usual patterns as everyone else. Such people are usually sociopaths or have sociopath attributes, which isn’t a bad thing. UFC fighter probably had his gun ready to draw, and decided to film.

      Hopefully either A: meth head gets caught, or B: he takes the money he stole and unfucks his life. Otherwise hes going to be up in someone else’ shit when he runs dry again.

      What do you want — it’s Kalifornia

  2. avatar Mark says:

    And if he had shot him, its likely that his martial arts skills would have been brought up and he would have been questioned on whether he “needed” to shoot. I personally don’t feel any obligation to engage in a “fair” fight with someone who attacks me.

    1. avatar Mark N. says:

      Unlikely that, even in California, he would have been charged. Under California law, if someone has broken into your home, it is presumed that that person intended great bodily injury or death. As a result, the prosecutor must overcome the presumption of lawful self defense and DISPROVE that you acted in self defense, a very difficult burden.

  3. avatar Alexander says:

    Our martial arts hero just sent a message to this methhead – go ahead and continue what you were doing – it pays well and is quite safe. Obviously, our hero has been thinking about the children that he has helped to protect…

  4. avatar former water walker says:

    Playing 20 questions with a lunatic. I think our “hero” got hit in the head one too many times…

  5. avatar Texican says:

    So that’s what a real zombie looks like!

  6. avatar No one of consequence says:

    OT: WA supreme court rules anti gun ballot measure must go on the ballot in spite of the errors, omissions and outright rulebreaking.

    So much for the rule of law. This, friends, is the real “wild west.”

    1. avatar Ing says:

      We’re screwed. We always were screwed on this one. Progressivism is a progressive disease.

  7. avatar FedUp says:

    Trying to knife Bruce Lee’s son in his home isn’t a good idea either.

    “I ended up taking the knife from him, and the police came and took him away. And after he got out of the hospital, he got two years…”

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      Unfortunately there is also long list of martial arts experts who have been killed because they decided that they could take on someone armed with a gun or knife.

      Well, I’m not sure if there’s one list, but there are plenty of incidents of it happening available through search results.

    “So we skinned his hide when he died, Clyde…and that’s it a hangin’ on the shed…Tie me kangaroo down… traditional. First thing that came to mind. 30

  9. avatar Sheep dog says:

    So much fail, numbnuts let the deranged meth head go so next time he breaks into a house of a young mother with children or 80 year old grand parents who don’t own a firearm; get blugeoned to death.
    Dingus could’ve detained the intruder until police arrived, but got there just in time for him to escape and NOT arrest the guy.

  10. avatar John says:

    I gotta hold onto this story for when some grandma basent troll says he don’t need no gun because he has his fists.

  11. avatar Shawn says:

    He was searching for his “Precious”. The one ring to rule them all.

  12. avatar Felix says:

    “Lister determined later that a considerable amount of money had been stolen.”

    Where exactly was this money hidden? Down his briefs?

  13. avatar GS650G says:

    He should have put him.out of his misery.

  14. avatar MLee says:

    These folks are around. I had one in front of my house tweaking hard in her car a few weeks ago. I videoed her for a while and called the cops because clearly she shouldn’t have been driving. But as is typically the case, the cops were too late getting here.
    I posted it on LiveLeak

  15. avatar Wildcat says:

    “In the end, he stole plenty of $$$$$ from me.” Where exactly did he hide the plenty of $$$$$? All he was wearing was a pair of boxers.
