Brian Stann Biography
Brian Stann was born September 24, 1980 and is an American mixed martial artist who currently fights for the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization, after first competing for the UFC's sister promotion World Extreme Cagefighting. He is a former WEC Light Heavyweight champion.
Stann began his fighting career in 2007, while still serving on active duty, and used accumulated leave to take time for training and fights.
On March 26, 2008 Stann defeated Doug Marshall to become the WEC Light Heavyweight champion. With this victory, Stann's MMA record reached 6-0, with five victories in the WEC.
In August he lost his first title defense in a rematch against Steve Cantwell.
In 2008, Zuffa announced plans to shut down the WEC's 185-lb and 205-lb weight classes, and bring all of those fighters to the UFC by 2009, leaving the WEC to concentrate on lighter weight classes.
Stann was scheduled to make his UFC debut on December 10, 2008 at the UFC Fight For The Troops show, to be held at the Army base of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, but sustained a foot injury and was forced to withdraw from the card. He faced Krzysztof Soszynski at UFC 97 in Montreal, Canada, on April 18. In the first round, Soszynski locked in a Kimura, forcing him to tap out for the first time.
On September 16, 2009 at UFC Fight Night: Diaz vs. Guillard, Stann once again faced Steve Cantwell in a rubber match. Stann would go on to defeat Cantwell via unanimous decision. This would also be the first time he would fight to a decision in his professional career.
