Michael Bisping vs. Brian Stann: 5 Fights for Stann to Take Next
Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

Following his loss to Michael Bisping at UFC 152, Brian Stann may already be at a bit of a crossroads in his UFC career.

After a lackluster 2-2 run at light heavyweight when he first entered the organization, Stann made the move to middleweight in August of 2010, and his win over Mike Massenzio started off the most successful stretch of his UFC tenure.

A couple of big-time knockout wins over Chris Leben and Jorge Santiago put Stann on the map as a true title contender at 185, but “The All American’s” struggles on the mat against Chael Sonnen and now Bisping have proved that he isn’t quite ready to make the leap into a bout with Anderson Silva anytime soon.

Despite Stann’s struggles in two of his last three Octagon bouts, there’s little doubt that the former U.S. Marine is one of the most dangerous competitors in the world in the middleweight division, and with under 20 career fights at 31 years old, he still has time to improve over the next few years.
