The orbit stabilizer theorem for concrete groups asserts that the type Orbit(x) of orbits of an element x : X * is deloopable and fits in a fiber sequence

  BG_x ----> BG ----> B(Orbit(x))

To see that this is indeed a formulation of the orbit-stabilizer theorem, note that the delooping of Orbit(x) gives Orbit(x) the structure of a group. Furthermore, this fiber sequence induces a short exact sequence

  G_x ----> G ----> Orbit(x),

which induces a bijection from the cosets of the stabilizer subgroup G_x of G to the type Orbit(x).
