“I told everybody from the start that I didn’t think it was going to happen, and I’ve said this a couple of times where I believe that Chael is very genuine when he says that if he has a problem with somebody, he’ll speak it, and when he doesn’t have a problem with somebody, he won’t… I also wouldn’t have taken it personally anyway if there was anything used to generate hype. I really think that our skill sets and the weight of this fight has generated all the hype it needs.”
Brian Stann tells the guys over at mmajunkie.com that he believes that his fight with the brash, Chael Sonnen needs no trash talk or hype, that the fight, simply, sells itself just on the merits of the matchup by itself.
MMA fans have grown accustomed to a very entertaining lead up from Chael Sonnen where he often bashes his opponents for months prior to their eventual meeting. While he usually attacks everything from their heritage to their fighting style, Sonnen has remained silent in the lead up to UFC 136.
At any rate, this fight is supposedly for the next number one contender to Anderson Silva’s middleweight title and with just four days left until it goes down… Who ya got BJPENN.COM?
