Brian Stann retires from MMA

Former WEC light-heavyweight champion Brian “All-American” Stann (12-6)  has hung up the gloves for good. Stann recently has also earned a job with FOX as a South ACC football commentator. Stann has been involved with UFC tonight and co-hosting the UFC post shows on FUEL TV as well. In his last bout, Stann was in a slug fest with Wanderlei Silva at UFC on FUEL TV 8: Silva vs. Stann back in March. Stann was clipped by Wandlerai and later knocked out. That was the second consecutive lost for Stann as he was defeated by Michael Bisping via unanimous decision at UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort.

Stann told press that he was planning on retiring after the lost to Silva, literally right after it was over. Stann wanted to make sure that when he exited it would be for good and not just a break. After a long time of thinking, he decided to retire for good. Stann will still be involved as he will live the life of a football and MMA commentator. Stann is a man who won a WEC world title and also will walk away with six UFC victories, four of those which were finishes over tough opponents.
