MMA: How Middleweight Contender Brian Stann Compares to Anderson Silva Today
Brian Stann lands a left hook on Jorge Santiago

Since dropping from light heavyweight to middleweight, and utilizing the mastery of Greg Jackson and the Jackson Fighting Submission camp, middleweight contender Brian "The All-American" Stann has decimated his opposition.

Thoroughly lambasting Chris Leben on New Year's Day, Stann followed up his knockout victory of "The Crippler" with a second round TKO of former Sengoku middleweight champion, Jorge Santiago.

Exploding through the middleweight stratosphere of competition, Stann has become highly regarded as a future challenger to the legendary icon and current middleweight champion, Anderson "The Spider" Silva.

Before placing Stann in the same breath as Silva, a breakdown of their skill-sets is necessary to determine if at this point in time, "The All-American" has the talent necessary to challenge "The Spider."

Or if the former Marine will become another victim of Anderson Silva's unbelievable highlight reel of knockouts.

Please follow along as I breakdown the various components of the fight game and whether Brian Stann or Anderson Silva has the advantage at this point in their development.

I welcome your comments.
