    Good fight Stann! I have no doubt that if you keep improving your game, and get 1 or 2 more solid wins you will be in title contention.

    Dana was talking about that window of opportunity that fighters have to make some serious money and challenge for title’s, Stann is getting closer to that window now. He seems more than just a a wreckless hard puncher now. Good fight.

    Sucks that Santiago lost…he’s such a good fighter but he has no chin n Stann is a contender at this division for sure Stann vs the winner of Belfort/Akiyama or Wand/Leben would b sick

    Great performance by Stann, as for Santiago I think he needs to drop to WW.
    Stann is up there but the grapplerrs, such as Maia, Sonnen, Okami and even Munoz are far too much for him. I’d like to see him against someone like Vitor though


    Santiago didn’t look in Stann’s league
