But similar to the way Bisping's skillset is discredited for him being a dick, Stann's skillset gets more credit (though not quite as intensely) than it should because he is such a wholesome guy. Not the fault of either guy but it happens.
I disagree with the last line. It's how you present yourself. Both fighters were hyped as good to start, Bisping had the UFC hype machine giving him all kinds of kudo's, but his personality showed through, plus his failure to be realistic. Sonnen knows he talks BS but my belief Bisping believes his.
Stann presents himself as a good person and handled his loss's as a respectfull person. Were Bisping choose the other road with his loss's, gifts, and what he reverts to when getting beat. [Rivera]
