Brian Stann Calls Out Wanderlei Silva, Expects 2011 Title Shot

UFC Middleweight contender Brian Stann put the stamp on Chris Leben this past weekend at UFC 125 and although Leben was the one calling out Wanderlei Silva prior to the bout, it is now Stann that wants to thrown down with the former Pride Middleweight Champion and future UFC Hall of Famer:

“This is with the utmost respect again like Chris Leben, I'm fighting in a house that guys like Chris Leben and Wanderlei Silva built. I think I'd like to fight Wanderlei next. He's been a guy who I've watched for years before I ever put a glove on. He's amazing, he's as tough as they come, he's as good as they come, he's a multiple weight champion, I think I'd like to fight him next. I'm in this to fight the best. I don't want any questions marks left behind when I finish my career, when my time in this sport is over, so whoever I need to fight to be in the top ten in the world is who I want to fight next. That's my No. 1 goal for 2011 is to be a top ten middleweight in the world, and work my way towards a title shot.”
