The UFC will never cut this lad. He would have to lose 5 on the trot. As Dana said, "Hes gold dust". This one guy can do more for helping the sport grow in the US then Chuck, Tito and Randy put together, if he ever gets a belt.

All those twats who talk about how barbaric our sport is, must be made mighty uncomfortable when they hear Stann talk and read about his life.

War Brain Stann! I loves me some chael, but in this fight, Im in your corner.

This is why this is the worst possible fight for the UFC. You have a guy who everyone likes (Stann). Then you have a guy who gave the P4P best fighter in the world the fight of his life (Sonnen). FYI about half of MMA loves Sonnen and the other half hates him. Either way people tune in. One of these guys is going to lose which will inevitable hurt the UFC. This fight makes NO SENSE.

I honestly can't even say who I'm rooting for in this fight. I like both guys a lot. This really sucks.
This doesn't suck, this is fantastic. It's a little reminder that no matter about characters like Sonnen and Stann who create interest not only by fighting but also with their interesting personalities, at the end of the day it is a sport, a competition, and there is only one way to sort the very best from the best.

I agree with this. this fight is proof that the UFC is about fighting. nobody gets a padded record or "brought along".

It would be Dana's dream for Stann to be champ but it won't happen if he can't beat the best.

Personally I think the winner of this fight will be the next champ.

From a marketing perspective this fight is a horrible use of Sonnen's natural charisma. Seriously how can the guy make fun of the battle tested Marine? What does he follow it up with jokes about cancer in prepubescence children? Give Chael somebody to work off.

This could perhaps set up Chael's most controversial trash talking ever if you think about it. Not only would it be against an honorable ex-marine but a man who did Chael a big favor. It literally would be the greatest good vs evil match up in UFC history.

Regardless if there is any trash talk, I'm excited! Both huge opportunities for the two guys to get a title shot.

There will have to be some talk. But, I think Chael will try to make it easy for fanboys to know it's tongue in cheek.

there won't be any insults to Stanns' Character or belittling of his abilities. He's already said multiple times that this is a tougher fight than Machida and I agree.

Why is it that we agree on just about everything? However I know I am rooting for Stann.
