"I'm obviously heartbroken. It was a good, tough fight, and I abandoned my plan a little bit by getting overaggressive.

"I think the fact that I hurt him early multiple times, it made me get overaggressive, leaving me susceptible to what he's best at, which is throwing a hard, overhand right."

"I think maybe I tempted fate a little bit by signing to meet Wanderlei in Japan, and it was just his night. My hat's off to him. He's one of the greatest fighters, ever, and I'm proud to be a part of his legacy."

I love Stann, that performance was leaps and bounds so much better than some of the guys pulling out wins lately.

Sure he lost, but he went to war with Wandy to entertain us. And he will forever have my respect.

I hold him above all the point fighters, Hope Dana takes care of him. Phone Post

Difficult to see where he goes from here? Back to MW fighting top contenders.

He's arguably a top 10 MW, and has only lost to Bisping and Sonnen there, no shame in that. Phone Post

It's also important to note that Silva will be done soon. This is the way to go out - on top. So, it was a good treat for him and his team.

Even if they just want him for Fuel and Fox commentary he isn't getting cut. He's incredibly entertaining to watch and valuable for his image as well. Phone Post

I can't be the only guy that became MORE of a Stann fan with that fight.

For our entertainment, he went in and intentionally or not, fought Wandy's fight. 

And it was spectacular.

 

He probably could have won a more tactical bout, but chose to get down and rock with The Axe Murderer. 

I'll watch Stann fight any time they put him on a card.

Huey Freeman -  Stann made a lot of fans tonight, I'm sure the Japanese appreciated the heart he showed, and willingness to give them an old school fight.

Most guys these days would have gone the schaub route to guarantee a win by basically stopping an actual fight happening and restraining opponents against the cage or floor, Stann is too classy for that.

Was a big fan before but now an even bigger one, shows that even in defeat you can show yourself to be a true winner. Phone Post

Well said and voted up.

I would rather watch Stann go out on his shield in a fight I will never forget over a lot of these point fighters and decision masters whose wins seem to all blur together in a forgettable abyss. My hats off to Stann.

although the barfight aspects of the fight were risky and exciting, he was kod during the technical portion of the fight, he wasnt throwing at the time, his hands were up and silva hit him just right, thru his guard

Stann took a fight 20 lbs above his weight class against the most violent fighter the sport has ever seen in Japan where Silva is practically a god. I don't know how many guys turned this fight down, but Stann didn't. He went out on his shield like the warrior he is. I have an immense amount of respect for that man. 

Thank you Brian Stann for your dedication to your country, to the people and to the fans of the greatest sport on Earth.
