Brian Stann, who was defeated by Chael Sonnen at UFC 135: Jones vs. Rampage earlier this month, revealed on his Twitter account that he may be on the shelf due to an injury suffered during the bout.
“May need surgery on my foot, but back in the gym anyways while I get more opinions,” Stann wrote.
Stann had his three-fight win streak snapped when Sonnen locked in a head and arm choke in the second round, forcing Stann to tap for just the second time in his career. His first submission loss came at the hands of Krzysztof Soszynski, a defeat that pushed Stann to drop from light heavyweight to middleweight.
While he waits for another opinion on his foot, Stann will still train with Bellator prospect Douglas Lima, who has advanced to the welterweight tournament finals where he will face Ben Saunders.
