Brian Stann vs. Steve Cantwell set for UFC’s Fight for the Troops

by:  Jack Bratcher

Yes you read that correctly, Brian Stann will face Steve Cantwell for the third time, but this time the fight will be in the UFC. This fight is scheduled for December 10 at Ft. Bragg, NC as part of the UFC’s Fight for the Troops card. Stann last fought Cantwell back in July when he lost his WEC Light Heavyweight Title by a round 2 TKO at WEC 35. It was Stann’s first title defense after defeating Doug “The Rhino” Marshall at WEC 33 in March of this year.  To have Stann fight at this event is pure genuis.  He is an Iraqi war veteran and considered the “Pride of the U.S. Marnie Corps” by military men and women who love to see one of their own compete at such a high level.

So how did Brian Stann and Steve Cantwell end up in the UFC? The Zuffa-owned (same company that owns the UFC) WEC, has decided to put a close to their light heavyweight and middleweight divisions. The organization which was founded in 2001, will now focus its efforts entirely on the bantamweight (135lbs.), featherweight (145lbs.), lightweight (155 lbs.), and welterweight (170lbs.) divisions.
