Does Brian Stann stand a chance vs Chael?

Ok..I like Brain Stann Alott..I mean he hits hard as rock, can take a punch, former Wec Champ, a huge 185lber, and he Trains with the Greg Jackson..Pretty Darn Impressive.

But know lets look at his weakeness. "Wrestling" I went back this week and watched some of his former fights when he was at 205. He did not have good take defense at all. He got schooled by Phil Davis over and over. Phil just beat him up with his wrestling.

And then He even got taken and down and submitted by Krzysztof Soszynski with a Kimura.

I know he hs been taken down in alot of other fights as well, but like I said they were all at 205.

Even though He is Fighting at 185 now, he will be fighting Chael Sonnen. If the guy wants you on the ground, your going to the ground. Plus Chael has never been knocked out in any of his MMA fights. I just don't see how Stann wins this fight. This is a huge jump from Chris Leben, and Jorge Santigo (who was on his first fight back in the UFC).

Your guys thoughts?

Yes I am afraid Actualy that Chael is psyching himself out. He is not his usual cocky self and if you read some of the interviews he has done for the fight he seems like he really doesn't want this fight.

The way I see it, the only chance Stann wins this fight is via TKO. If he can rock Sonnen early on before he gets taken down, then he should go for the finish ASAP. I do not see him submitting Sonnen. If Sonnen can survive 23mins on the ground with Silva, I'm sure he can avoid getting submitted by Stann in the 15mins time limit. So, either Stann via TKO, or Sonnen via UD.

You're misreading him entirely.


He didn't trash talk Marquardt, Okami, or Miller either. Stann is a respectable American hero, Chael probably genuinely respects him.

But that won't stop him from smashing him.

Voted No.
Stann will be on his back for 3 rounds.

YES

Stann doesn't strike flat footed anymore. He's a mobile target & can fight going backwards to avoid being taken down.

The title of the thread makes it sound like Stann is fighting Magneto or something.

Sonnon's record is 25 - 11; he's eminently beatable.

If Stann can stuff some TD's, land a few big shots, and/or throw a choke/sub on, he's got a decent chance of winning.

How good is his triangle? If he's got the triangle mastered he'll have the fight wrapped up nicely.

Stann has a chance, but I wouldn't bet on it. Sonnen is like the worst possible matchup for him.

I know, and I agree with what your saying. But you have to look at things closer. Chael has never been KO'd in any of his losses, ever. Chael only losses by getting submitted. Brian Stann isn't know for his great submission game off his back.
