Brian Stann Points To Chael Sonnen To Defeat Anderson Silva At UFC 147

Brian Stann has been inside the Octagon with Chael Sonnen, and has watched UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva compete for several years now.

So, when Stann decides to give his opinion on a fight, it carries some weight to it. While appearing on UFC Tonight recently, Stann offered his insight on the upcoming rematch between Silva and Sonnen, which is scheduled for UFC 147.

I think that Chael Sonnen takes it. I think he’s particularly a very, very difficult match up for Anderson Silva.

Stann is currently awaiting his next fight, which is set for later this month from Sweden against Alessio Sakara at UFC on FUEL TV: Silva vs. Gustafsson. Stann lost to Sonnen late in 2011, and will need to make a strong impact against Sakara if he wants to remain in the Top-10 in the division.
