Brian Stann Chris Leben UFC 125If there’s one thing you can say about UFC 152 fighter Michael Bisping, it’s that he has the gift of gab.

Throughout his UFC career, Bisping has never been short on words for any opponent, and he’s not afraid to broach any subject when being interviewed or talking about an upcoming fight or fighter.

It’s no different as Bisping prepares to meet former WEC champion Brian Stann, who is the latest fighter to fall victim to the Brit’s brash words.

But for everything Bisping says to hype up his fight with Stann or to criticize his fighting style, coaching, or anything else, it’s all falling on deaf ears.

“I absolutely 100-percent don’t care,” Stann said about Bisping’s trash talk when speaking to MMAWeekly Radio. “I really don’t. Me and Mike aren’t friends, merely acquaintances, so he knows nothing about me. So I don’t see how we’d be insulted by anything we’d say to one another.

“One thing I know about Mike, he’s an intelligent guy. He knows what he’s doing. He gets paid very, very well to do what he does, and one of those reasons is because he generates a lot of interest in his fights. I knew that was a part of the game.”

Any criticisms that Bisping has about Stann are merely his opinions, and the former Marine is immune to anything that might be said about him leading up to this fight.

For Stann, it all comes down to the fight and Bisping’s words won’t help him one bit in the Octagon.

The mentality that Stann needs on Saturday night is just an iron will for victory, so no pre-fight interview, press conference or otherwise will rattle him one bit. It all comes down to throwing hands with Michael Bisping, and the better fighter will come out on top.

“I’ve said it many times – I have absolutely no fear of getting knocked out, I just don’t care. I believe one of the secrets to winning in the UFC is to lose the fear of losing. You have to get rid of it,” Stann stated.

“I fight to win and so be it if I get caught when I’m trying to finish somebody, I can live with that. But I can’t live with going in there and holding back my best because I was afraid to lose.”

Brian Stann is immune to any verbal attack that Michael Bisping launches at him because no amount of pre-fight talk will help once they step into the cage at UFC 152.
