Brian Stann thinks he beat Michael Bisping, doesn't want to fight 'up-and-comers'

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

UFC Middleweight Brian Stann admits bias, but still believes he was the better man against Michael Bisping at the UFC 152 pay-per-view last week in Toronto.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) eliminated yet another contender from its middleweight title race following a unanimous decision win for Michael Bisping over Brian Stann at the UFC 152: "Jones vs. Belfort" pay-per-view (PPV) event last Saturday night (Sept. 22, 2012) at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

There's just one problem.

The "All American" believes it was he -- not "The Count" -- who did enough to deserve the decision. And as he told the UFC on FUEL TV post-fight show (via MMA Torch), he's not the only one who feels that way.

"[I'm] disappointed obviously. Dana came back after the fight and told me he thought I won the fight. Of course I am going to be biased, I was in there and I thought I won. I have to take an analytical view. I knew it was going to be close, but I thought I won the fight. I think I could still fight the good contenders, I don't think I go back to fighting the up and comers. I think if I get two big wins in a row, I can get right back to a fight that means something. There are a lot of us to who have gotten there, fall down and then come back. That is what I have to do."

Here's another look at how the action went down:

Bisping is hoping he's earned a crack at reigning division titleholder Anderson Silva, but is more than willing to go through Chris Weidman, if necessary. Stann, however, doesn't want to lose his place in line and isn't too keen on going back to fighting "up-and-comers."

Anyone disagree?
