UFC Quick Quote: Brian Stann 'winning every part' of his fight against Krzysztof Soszynski

"I've done all the right things in the past seven months to get ready for this fight and move myself to where I need to be. I got the coaches I needed so I can come in here, compete and do well, which is what I'm going to do. I've been home probably a total of four weeks since December 2008. The rest of the time has been spent in Albuquerque, N.M., at Greg Jackson's. I helped Rashad get ready for Forrest and Keith Jardine get ready for Quinton. I've been down there helping everyone else and now the last two months everyone is helping me. It's just been great -- they've all been there for me through thick and thin.... We'll probably test the waters for 10 or 20 seconds and then get after it. I see this fight going everywhere and I see myself winning every part where it goes to, whether it's on the ground wrestling or standing up.... I know I am probably going to get booed out of the stadium, but I have a lot of respect for these fans in Montreal.... He's their hometown guy and they should root for him. But it's not going to have any impact on the outcome of the bout whatsoever."

-- Former WEC light heavyweight champion Brian Stann tells that hometown favorite Krzysztof Soszynski will be outclassed at every turn -- despite the support of the Canadian fans -- in their main card bout at UFC 97 "Redemption" on Saturday night. The "All American" hasn't competed since being stopped by nemesis Steve Cantwell at WEC 35 back in August 2008. Is Stann ready to pick up where he left off in the WEC? Or does "The Polish Experiment" send him back to the lab?
