UFC Tonight decided to bring in Michael Bisping for the post-fight show to UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao Saturday night. And with Bisping upcoming opponent, Brian Stann, serving on the announce panel, sparks were sure to fly.
Bisping and Stann will meet in a key middleweight contest at UFC 152 on September 22. The card takes place from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The two, however, didn’t quite attack each other as you might have expected.
“I think I’m going to win,” Stann said. “I know you think you’re going to win. I want people to know we aren’t trash talking; we’re getting excited about the fight and giving the fans the fight they want to see in Toronto.”
Bisping replied back, “When I’m talking trash, I’m not calling your personality into question. But we are going to fight and I’m going to win. I’m going to do everything I can to beat the living crap out of you.”
After the loss suffered by Hector Lombard, it appears the main name atop most contender lists is Chris Weidman. Bisping and Stann each could make a strong push for the No. 1 contender spot in the UFC with a big win over the other.
