Don't see how Stann loses this one, Sakara's chin is terrible and Stann has put out guys like Leben, the second he connects with Sakara he'll put him away with a vicious barrage.

unless sakara can Sonnen his ass he will be put away... too much power, a glancing shot will easily set him up for a TKO

Saved me from posting the exact same thing. Sakara has always had trouble with brawlers (Leben, Houston, McFedries) even though he always seems to start out well with solid boxing he just doesn't have the KO power to put guys away so he tends to wilt after he hits guys with his best combos and they don't go down.

Stann by KO round one.

Stann finished Leben with strikes, I see him doing the same to Sakara.

My money is on Stann but Sakara is a dark horse in this fight depends on how he mentally shows up. Stann has scary attributes standing which will serve him well. He is the type of striker who should beat technical strikers a level above him because of his attributes.

I actually expect Sakara to outstrike him and slow him down with body shots, thats how I can see Sakara winning but Stann should finish him at some point in the fight.

I think Sakara has a chance as he had pretty good technical boxing. But the history shows guys with good striking and good power usually take Sakara out. I expect them both to land a few good shots but Stann to eventually rock Sakara likely in the 1st round and put him away.
