Oh I see. Well I guess we'll see what happens then, I don't mind Brian so hopefully if they ever fight Brian will practice his triangle & then we all know what happens

He doesn't even really train there...so I don't know what you are saying here.

He has his own gym, and moves around a lot. He said going into the Maia fight he didn't even go to Brazil. He might train at Blackhouse U.S. but he rarely trains straight up with Silva anymore. They are far from close training partners, so I doubt it is a problem.

He thinks they're close enough to talk about Anderson moving up in weight to avoid fighting

I see Stann stuffing all of Munoz's TDs and KOing him in the 1st round, if not early 2nd. I love Munoz but Stann will walk right through him.

Stann should take this, but Munoz is no joke. I'm saying Stann by UD

Yah I wouldn't mind seeing this fight although I figured a Vitor Belfor match up would mean fireworks.

Problem is both of these fighters (Munoz/Stann) are relative newbies. They've vastly improved, however they utilize their strength (LHW.) Munoz bullies the 185 fighters around. Stann is HUGE for a 185 pounder. He packs in raw power. Leben looked like a midget against em.

I agree.

Stann has been working long and hard with better mma wrestlers and it will show.

I'm not sure how Stann's TDD is right now but both Phil Davis and Kristof Soszynski were able to take him down and actually mount him during their fights, admittedly those fights were at LHW.

"A lot of people credit the weight cut, which is something that needed to happen. But the weight cut really happened at the same time that I really began to become well rounded and really focus on a lot of wrestling.

"My jiu-jitsu is a lot better than people realize. The limiting factor was really my wrestling, and I focused a lot on that - very hard - in the last two camps. I think it's going to take another two years. I'm still getting better. There are still things for me to learn. It's encouraging for me knowing that I'm only going to fight top guys now. I'm excited for the future."
Brian Stann

I think Brian speaks the truth. In an understated way.

Um, really? Someone else pointed out Stann has been taken down by guys with a lot worse wrestling than Munoz, it's a pretty obvious achilles heel for Stann.

Stann could certainly win, Munoz isn't exactly unbeatable, but if Munoz fights smart, he wins this pretty easy. If he pulls a Kos-Alves "I iz a stryker", then Munoz gets killed, but, I'd make him a slight favorite.
