August 21st, 2017 | by Lennart Van Arendonk

De oud WEC Light Heavyweight kampioen en oud UFC Middleweight vechter Brian Stann is de afgelopen tijd actief geweest als commentator en analist bij de organisatie. Na veel succesvolle evenementen is het tijd om zijn carrière om te gooien. Stann maakte het nieuws bekend via Social Media.

I am announcing my departure from calling fights w/ the UFC. I have been offered an amazing leadership role with a fast growing Real Estate Firm and will be attending Northwestern (Kellogg) for my executive MBA this fall. Thank you to everyone for years of support, especially the athletes and coaches whom I love deeply. I will continue to be a huge MMA supporter and attend many events. Thank you to everyone from FOX and Zuffa who helped me so much in this journey. @jon_anik you are my brother and that will never change, and I cannot tell you how important your friendship has been to me. My wife @teressa_stann who has endured so much and supported me through war, fighting, and now this transition, I love forever and thank you so much. This move is to focus more on my family. I traveled 26 weekends last year for work while also working a full time job. Transition and change are a part of life and I am really excited to prove my worth to my new company and hopefully showcase the diverse skills military veterans and mixed martial artists possess. Thank you all. – Brian
