Brian Stann: I absolutely want to test Bisping's chinPosted on August 31, 2012, 11:23 AM by Mike Searson
Brian Stann (12-4) and Michael Bisping (22-4) are set to face each other at UFC 152 on September 22. Stann says this fight will bring him one step closer to becoming a champion. He feels Bisping is one of the best and wants to test his abilities against him in the Octagon: "This guy's one of the biggest stars of the UFC. He's on the cusp of a title shot. That's the situation I'm always looking for. I want to fight the best guys."
Stann feels that Bisping is the perfect foe; a fighter who will give him a real challenge: "I don't think there's an opponent out there that would have gotten me more excited. He's a guy that settles into the fight quickly, executes his game plan very well and mixes it up. He has a good feel when he needs a takedown or a couple of shots to secure the round. I think he's the very best guy at scrambling back to his feet when he's taken down."
Stann wants to stan-up in this bout and is hoping Bisping will stay on his feet: "I absolutely want to test his chin. Anybody who stood with me knows the fight doesn't last long. I'm in this to be a champion and I need to beat Michael Bisping to make a statement."
