UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping, spoke to Yahoo Sports and made comments about his opponent’s coach, style and gave his thoughts on Brian Stann as well.
“Come on, guys. Just because Stann trained with some smug git from New Mexico who 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.
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.”
Michael Bisping and Brian Stann will meet in the Octagon on September 22nd in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The winner very well could be the next man to challenge for the middleweight title.
