Brian Stann would willingly accept Michael Bisping's invitation to a fight at UFC 152, if the UFC chooses to put the two men in the same Octagon.

Bisping wants a new opponent after injury forced him out of a clash with Tim Boetsch. The Brit called out Stann and Alan Belcher on UFC Tonight, and now he has a response.

Bisping said earlier in the week: "I just spoke to Joe Silva not too long ago and I am hoping to fight at UFC 152 in Toronto. I would like to fight Brian Stann, he is a good fighter.

"A second one is Alan Belcher. Alan Belcher's somebody that's been calling me out for seems like, forever, now. To be quite frank I'm sick of it. "

Stann, never one to trash talk an opponent, kept his reply short and simple, and it now awaits to be seen if matchmaker Joe Silva will let the two middleweights battle.

"My shoulder will be ready, fans want it, we always deliver, let's do it," Stann tweeted at Bisping on Wednesday.
