UFC 152 is coming and as one of the marquee bouts to the lead up to two title fights that night, Michael Bisping will be facing Brian Stann in a fight that could have serious title implications. The always outspoken and polarizing British fighter blogged for Yahoo! Sports and had some very strong words for Greg Jackson and his opponent in Stann.
First off, some choice words for Greg Jackson and his game-planning:
Come on, guys. Just because Stann trained with some smug git from Newwho can quote the "Ninja Turtles," doesn’t mean he’s got some mystical insight to beat me. Listen, Greg Jackson has a smug grin on his face when his gameplans go well, but when they go tits up he’s not there going: "Well, blame me, folks. The fighter just followed my stupid ideas."
And Brian Stann isn’t a fighter who can follow through with a sophisticated strategy anyway.
More snippets about his thoughts on Stann:
I have a good chin but Stann can knock anyone in the division out with his power. But that’s not going to happen. A stupid mistake aside, I mince Brian Stann’s arse like burger meat nine times out of 10... I’ve not seen too much evolution in his game. He’s the same guy, someone who will always be dangerous but isn’t a top talent in the division and never will be.
Stann has talked big about how he’s going to put me to sleep. Well, that’s a fact. I can’t avoid it. None of us can. Brian is going to tell some more deathly boring old war stories at the pre-fight press conference, and we are all going to be in for a snooze.
More after the jump.
I was kicking arse in the UFC when Stann was peeling potatoes, shining shoes and getting called "a maggot’ by some red-faced sergeant in the Marines. This isn’t warfare, this is MMA, and I’m better at it than Brian Stann will ever be. On September 22, Brian Stann is getting knocked out – fast.
Michael Bisping is currently a slight favorite at -165, and Stann is at +153.
