If Bisping wins this, expect him to get a title shot. If stann wins it, expecting to have to fight at least once more to get it.
haha well yeah, I view them as both being about the same, rank-wise. (and I like Stann, fan-wise, but Bisp is a douche) I don't feel either deserves a shot coming out of this fight, but Bisp may get it if he wins. I feel either one needs to beat a top 5 guy first, tho.
Let me re-make my post for Stann:
"Stan beats the [overrated/middling] fighter via T/KO then loses the following title shot matchup."
