Everyone knows he's a big, powerful, striker, and that's what I've got to look out for. I think, technically, I've got him beat. I'm better on the feet. I'm better on the ground. But, obviously, that one-punch knockout power is the thing I've got to look out for. I'm training with tough guys. I'm getting beat up on a daily basis, and I'm preparing. I'm doing everything I can. I'll be ready.

I definitely have Bisping for this one apart from a KO which is unlikely I just don't see how Stann wins.

I'm surprised Bispings the favorite here but I don't like his volume of punches and suspect chin against the power and jaw of Stann's. Bisping's legit but I like Stann by 2nd round tko.

I don't really see how Bisping has a suspect chin...maybe suspect in that it's always flapping
Stann looks like he has some holes in his stand up game, covered up by his striking power. I think Bizz has very good hands and very well disciplined striking, I don't see him getting caught.

Agreed. Me neither.

I don't see how Stann wins this.

Bad match-up imo.

x2. You can't base a fighter having a suspect chin on a KO by a H-bomb.
