In regards to the title shot i'd think it would go like this:

Munoz>Stann

Bisping>Munoz

Stann>Bisping

Munoz' MMA wrestling isn't great, at all, but Stanns wrestling hasn't been tested at MW yet.

Interesting one, but I don't really care for either guy.

Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Brian Stann
Round 1
Stann is unloading with his hands as Soszynski steps forward in the pocket. Stann goes to Soszynski’s lead leg with an inside-low kick. Soszynski secures the Thai plum, but he is unable to mount any offense before catching a right hand on the top of his head. Soszynski drops down for a double-leg takedown and he easily gets it. Stann tries to stand and Soszynski rips his legs out from underneath him. Soszynski hops into the mount but loses it when Stann transitions to a heel hold. Soszynski defends and moves to side control. Stann gets to his feet and is slammed immediately to the floor. From half-guard, Soszynski locks in a kimura and Stann escapes. Another kimura comes from side control and Stann taps quickly. The official time is 3:53 of the opening frame.
Soszynski is no slouch but his wrestling credentials do not compare with Munoz' and i fully recognise that this was a couple of years ago however unless Stann's TDD has improved big time i don't think he will be able to stop Munoz.

It's hard to say though, he has had the time to improve and hasn't really been tested for quite a bit, i hope this fight happends.

Yeah, it's pretty much guess work at this point. He was taken down and controlled with ease by Phil Davis too, but that's Phil Davis.

I'd prefer to see Vitor vs Stann.

He probably wasn't. Strikers ALWAYS say they are working on their tdd and they probably always are. Thing is, a few months or even a couple years of "working on tdd" can't compare to years and years of wrestling at an elite collegiate level. Munoz will take a UD here without much trouble as long as he gameplans well (meaning he realizes how terrible his stand up is and immediately takes Stann down).
