UFC middleweight super-slugger Brian Stann must get a kick out of fighting International competition.
On Sat., April 14, 2012, the "All American" will throw hands opposite Italian boxer Alessio Sakara on the main card of the UFC on FUEL TV 2 event from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. After that?
Bring on Michael Bisping.
Apparently Stann isn't too happy with comments "The Count" made following a submission loss to Chael Sonnen at UFC 136 last October. The brash Brit called Stann a "white belt" who was "exposed."
And as Stann explains to EsNewsReporting, them fightin' words.
"Michael Bisping. I wouldn't try to 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."
