wow, this should be a really good fight!.....both guys like to stand and bang and thats probably what they are gonna do......i got krystof just based on experience and little more refined technique...plus stann has some rust, and coming off a loss, we shall see how much he has improved tho

Wow. I guess they aren't giving the TUF 8 guys the usual cupcakes that they've given other TUF members from other seasons.

So much for the better tho...THis will be a good fight. Gotta give it to Stann tho

Could be an exciting fight, but whether it is will be dependent upon what kind of gameplan Team Quest comes up with. Krzysztof is a little better standing, but there's a bigger gap grappling even though it's neither fighters specialty. I think Krystoff will take him down and work some mediocre jiujitsu enroute to a proclamation, "I've got jiujitsu to."

I agree they are definetly ramping up the opponents for the newer TUF alumni. I like both these fighters but I am leaning towards Stann to win by devastating KO.

I'm thinking krystyoff by sub.

But if Stann can suck him into a brawl on the feet, it could go either way. Stann has some heavy hands, but technically Krystyoff is a little better.

I think Stann takes this one relatively easy actually. I'm a Krystof fan too. I just think the power Stann has will transition over well in this fight. Stann 2nd round TKO.

i see soszynski taking this fight.
he has way more experience then stann and krzysztof's standup is his strong point and thats how stann will try to beat him. i don't see it happening.
