I would say that is one of his biggest weapons: his power.

Santiago is knows for not having the best chins in the game.
But...
Leben is a guy who can take a lot of punishement. And Stann took him out in devastating fashion.

He is improving at a fast pace and with Greg Jackson as the game plan architect, Stann could be a major force in the very close future.
Well said!

I think the UFC does a fantastic job with Stann right now, but they should not overlook his skills.

He's a top 10 guy I think, but he won't be able to beat a top 5 guy in my mind. Bisping would be a cool fight I think..

I also would like to see him fight Bisping...very marketable fight...would be even better if it were after a TUF season...but it won't happen unfortunately.

Stann is definitely improving fast, and he will be a contender in the near future for sure.

I see him smash Bisping along with the rest of the division, except for Okami and Sonnen (not sure what to think of Vitor at 185)...

However, I do see him get humiliated by Silva once he gets his shot...

Lastly, although I like the fact that he doesn't talk trash, I am kinda annoyed by the whole "America Hero" stuff...but I understand how it might appeal to the US fans...

amazing how many people but him on Bisping's level already, at least in the title race anyway which is how it could be if the fight ever happened, lets be real Bisping has done far more the the UFC LHW division, had a much more successful LHW run as well, than Stann, just another fcuk you to working for your place as the hype train roles up again.

A fair place in that division for him right now would be to face Palhares, then see how that sh1t works out, then see if him or Palhares is the low ranked talent in that division ready to move up to the big fights instead of him, but you know we will never see that fight, but we all know they would never risk one of there hype boys in a fight like that, we all know this hype up trick we have seen it before, the UFC is ******* Bull Sh1t.

YOu can't blame Bisping that the Match making in the UFC is a joke or Stann for that reason, as for your top 5 theory, does that include Nate btw what a joke lol, anyway I bet Stann does not have to wait for countless wins in the UFC to get his big name.

**** it give him Bisping, would be a good fight anyway and Bisping would probably just crush him anyway, unless it comes down to another who is the fans favorite fighter decision.

Its just a piss take what guys like Bisping and Palhares, who is the sleeping giant in that division btw, have to do to get in line for the big names and journey to the title, to what an American like Stann has to do.

im also not really into the whole american hero thing, BUT i am into brian stann.....ok...that came out wrong...

anyway, american hero aside, this guy is awesome, he really does say the best things, hes very humble and i like listening to him talk, he has impressed me in and out of the octagon

i think he does have potential to be a superstar like randy or GSP, you dont have to talk smack to be a superstar, i think he has charisma, has awesome fights, and just simply everything going for him

he could easily become the next captain america (as some1 posted a thread about him being the next captain america a while ago)

i think just like he said, in 2 years he will be a dangerous guy...he has legit power, seems like he touches and you go down, his striking is coming along well, he just needs that wrestling now, wich i think he can pick up well

him vs bisping would be interesting, yes bisping is ahead in rankings but bisping isnt fighting the competition stann is, sorry but leben and santiago are more impressive than bispings last wins, hell he lost to wandy (yes...he did)

i think he would wreck bisping, bisping has better striking but stann would TKO him IMO

EDIT: though i do consider bisping a tough fight, ppl really underrated him, he is easily a top 10 guy, closer to top 5 than 10...though he still needs to prove himself more, just like stann...who has bisping beat? until he beats maia, okami, palhares (actually palhares is below him in rankings but i think he would wreck bisping, he will be a top guy) belfort, hell even santiago...

Are you fcuking real, wooo he beat Leban yea so did fcuking Bisping, in fact Bisping beat a roided up version of Leban years back, but you know when Bisping beats Leban, Leban is just another stat padding 3rd rate mug, when Stann beats him Leban becomes like the most dangerous opponent out there and a huge win.

As for the Wandy decision, maybe if you only score the last 30 seconds of each round you score a Wandy win, but thats the only way, but of course no one with Wandy love and Bisping Hate, which is no small number of fans wants to even begin to hear or accept the truth.

Your right Bobby fighting in this case is the Answer

Just who is the question, doe she get fasted tracked into the title race, which Bisping is unquestionably in, in fact if Okami is No.1 contender then Bisping is next in line no question since they both run very very very close both UFC and MMA career wise records.


So do you give Stann the golden Couture and Brock Ticket to skip the division and go straight for the juice, or do you have him prove that he is the man who deserve to move foreword with the hype against the other real talented fighter in the division.

To he fair its Palhares been screwed and who I feel for with moves like this, they will track Stann forward by with the golden hype ticked while Palhares is left crunching opponents on the prelims watching Stann a man he would crush take the fights that should be his if only the UFC did was fair and made then fight for it.
