Stann: I want to prove I'm tougher than Chris Leben

source: bloodyelbow.com
 

"And there's only one way to do that and that's fight him. So we called Joe Silva and told him this is the match-up we want. He called Chris and like a true fighter that Chris is, he accepted. He doesn't want to sit around and wait for somebody, I know Wanderlei Silva got hurt, so Leben accepted. I expect to go in there and get 'Fight of the Night' for this."

Stann is going to be like 'What is this guy, he's a dump truck, he just keeps going, keeps coming forward'

All for Stann in this one. Well, actually, all for Stann in all his fights. You can't meet a classier competitor.

I think Stanns an amazing competitor, and I think he's got a great all-around game.  But I think everyone's just agreeing that we feel like he bit off more than he can chew.  Leben seems like a REALLY bad match-up for Stann anywhere this fight goes. But every time I think that, I remember that Stann wants this fight.  He asked for it, and got it.  Clearly he thinks he has something here.  I do agree with everyone that I hope his actual gameplan isn't to out "tough" Leben because that's not happing. I'll certainly be looking forward to this fight, and a great contender for FOTN

Stann takes this on the feet. His stand up has really improved at Jacksons.

 No one is tougher than the Cat Smasher haha. I think Leben will KO/TKO Stann in this fight. Leben is on a roll, and I can't see Stann being the one to stop him.

 It's not the best game plan. If he succeeds at it though, it is something. Why not exploit an opponent's weakness or stifle his/her strength—that is, make their strength fail. Fighting Leben's game plan seems like the least smart option of those available. I like both guys, but brawling with Leben is dumb. On other question (for Kirik/Chris): why not auto correct on the typing here? Surely you can afford it.
