UFC Quick Quote: Brian Stann still wants to fight Wanderlei Silva -- but will settle for his autograph

"I don’t know who [I’ll fight next]. Everybody is pretty matched up right now. You’ve got [Michael] Bisping fighting [Jason Miller], even. I just need to get home and spend some time with my kids and family before I [return] to training and continue my development in striking, wrestling and jiu-jitsu. I’d always love to fight Wanderlei. He’s one of my favorite fighters ever. It would be a dream come true. But, if I never have to fight him, then maybe I can just get a picture with him and an autograph. That would be pretty cool."

UFC middleweight sniper Brian Stann (via Sherdog.com), who continues to pick off any 185-pounder he sets his sights on, takes aim at the legendary Wanderlei Silva, who recently passed on the chance to fight the winsome war hero for fear of becoming a villain in the eyes of the fans. Stann proved he's the Mann by smashing Jorge Santiago on the main card of UFC 130: "Rampage vs. Hamill" last Saturday night (May 28) in Las Vegas. Should he rest his broken thumb and wait to fight the Brazilian "Axe Murderer," who faces Chris Leben at UFC 132 on July 2? Or has the "All American" already moved on to bigger and better things?
