Good thing Stann stopped on his own. Could have killed him!

I was expecting Sakara to get the better of Stann in a boxing match basically, totally not expecting those nasty knees though. Pass the crow.

Haha I didn't mean to call just you out on that one. In your defense, when Stann was throwing those kicks early on, Sakara was getting through with a few counter punches. I was saying to the screen "You're getting tagged a little Brian, stop throwing kicks, throw some hands." because of Sakara's questionable chin, but Stann had a better idea in mind apparently.

Stann is pure power, and he looked more agile too. I like Sakara but trying to bang with Stann? Clever.

I like Stann and he proved once again that he has power in his hands and is continuing to evolve in his stand up game, but I never really see him reaching the top due to the large deficiencies in his ground game. If he does get the Bisping fight, I could easily see him getting taken down and UD'ed or subbed.

That's actually a good point. Bisping has an underrated ground game and decent take downs. His ground and pound is solid as well. Just ask Denis Kang and Sinosic, two guys who are BJJ black belts. (They're not the best fighters in the world, but they have solid BJJ credentials) Bisping took them both down and overwhelmed them with punches. I could see him having a similar game plan against a guy like Stann. It would be a good fight to say the least.
