Former WEC light heavyweight champion Steve “The Robot” Cantwell (7-3) was a guest on Thursday night’s Cageside Beat, the official radio show of ProMMA.info. Cantwell, along with training partner Anthony Njokuani (who is fighting Chris Horodecki at this weekend’s WEC event), hung out with hosts Brian and Mike for about half the show and discussed a myriad of topics. One such topic was Brian Stann.
The first time Cantwell faced Stann was at WEC 26 back in 2007. Stann won a quick 0:41 TKO over Cantwell, giving “The Robot” his first professional loss… but their saga was far from over.
Cantwell got to return the favor when the two met again, a year later at WEC 35. This time it was Cantwell who scored a TKO (second round), and took Stann’s light heavyweight title.
