Ahh, sorry I didn't mark it as spoiler. I forgot that some people would be DVRing prelim to watch later, and some countries don't get it for free on Spike at all.

Anyway, looking back over the fight, the one thing I am somewhat disappointed with is the show-boating in round 3. When he was down with his back against the cage, and he started making the yawning gesture while he was taking punches in the side, that was a bit off. Sure, they may not be hurting you, but your opponent is scoring points, and making a yawning expression is neither scoring points, defending yourself, nor working to get out of the position.

I still think he has some maturing to do, but with a bit more training and maturing, he has the raw talent to be a star IMHO.

Was more impressed with Phil Davis, Guy is a monster, reminds me of a green 205 GSP.

I've never been impressed by Stann. In my eyes, he's a white version of Houston Alexander. He didn't do anything significant on his feet in this fight and still shows that his ground game will never catch up to be considered a threat. Not knocking Davis, you're right he did look really good though.
