Brian Stann Puts Michael Bisping on Notice

(Seconds after becoming the world’s first active-duty UFC Champion, Brian Stann happened to witness a gang of streetwise thugs kidnapping WWE superstar John Cena’s wife. And now he won’t stop until until the streets…are safe again. Brian Stann IS The Marine 2: The Actual Marine .)

We’re not going to suggest that Brian Stann might be looking past his upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 2 bout with Italian striker Alessio Sakara, because here at CP, we don’t just jump to conclusions. But granted Stann is successful come April 14th, he already has his next opponent in mind. And believe it or not, it’s Michael Bisping. When asked on the subject of dream opponents by EsNewsReporting, Stann was quick to reply:

Michael Bisping. I wouldn’t try to do anything but walk straight through him with a right hand. Here’s the deal: I don’t know Michael personally, sometimes I think he gets a bum rap and I’ve learned not to judge people off the media and things of that nature. After my last fight he had a few comments about my technique and who I was as a fighter that I thought were a little odd. He called me a ‘white belt’ and said that I was ‘exposed’ so I’d love to see him put his money where his mouth is. We can fight and we can solve that. He may be a great guy, I don’t know, and maybe he is, but I would just like to compete against him since he made those comments. 

Both Bisping and Stann are coming off losses to number one middleweight contender Chael Sonnen, the only difference being that Stann succumbed to a second round arm triangle choke at UFC 136 and Bisping dropped a controversial decision at the second UFC on Fox event. Like we said, if Stann makes it by Sakara, who has been a gatekeeper of sorts in his UFC career, a match with Bisping would make perfect sense, don’t you think?

Whether Stann is looking past Sakara or not remains to be seen, but you can definitely tell that Bisping has gotten inside the former WEC Light Heavyweight Champion’s head. Sure, Alessio hasn’t fought in nearly a year, forced out of bouts with everything from ACL tears to bad tuna fish sandwiches, and sure, Sakara’s jaw will probably be to reduced to ash when Stann’s fist finds it. But the fact that he’s already got Bisping on his mind says something about the Brit’s “world renowned” trash talking abilities, and he hasn’t even started yet. A word to the wise Brian, no good comes from looking past an opponent.

@SocraticMethod - Ahhh yes, my mistake. I knew he KOed both of them and that quick gif has werdum lookin a little chunkier than usual, right at Gonzaga's level of chunky. But yeah, I stand corrected on who implemented the "sit-down in chair" defense.
SocraticMethod- February 24, 2012 at 1:16 pm
@Sloppyspray - I was right there with you until you mistook Werdum for Gonzaga.

@ArmFarmer - So was that Jardine stoppage! Geez, dude was just trying to get his contact back into his eye. It was laying on the mat right there, why pick it up when you can slam your face into it and hope it gets back in your eye.
And don't even get me started on Gonzaga. Look how elusive he was in his "sit-down in chair" defense. I mean he basically completely dodged that left from Dos Santos, all he could do was tap him with his palm. That's what I call intelligent defense.
Gener- February 24, 2012 at 12:55 pm
Um.... he was asked a question...
ArmFarmer- February 24, 2012 at 12:55 pm
Good lord that kos ko was a terrible stoppage.. forgot how bad that was.
The12ozCurls- February 24, 2012 at 12:50 pm
So basically, Brian Stann CAN look past Alessio Sakara - he just has to watch out for the uppercut. Sounds legit.
The12ozCurls- February 24, 2012 at 12:47 pm
Did anyone else notice that all the gifs Knock Outs are from uppercuts? Just sayin . . . . . . . .
superdude- February 24, 2012 at 12:44 pm
Stann VS Bisping winner takes on Munoz. Make it happen.

I'd like to see this, too. It would help determine who may get a shot after Fael gets his ass beat.
