Brian Stann knew the risk when he entered the Octagon opposite Wanderlei Silva in Japan. The outcome saw the two land significant blows before Silva connected with the sweet one with just a minute to spare in round two.
The US Marine now finds himself at 1-3, but is optimistic about the future as he isn’t looking to open his mouth too soon about retirement or a potential release.
“I’m probably right in that same status as I was following the fight,” said Stann to Bleacher Report. “I have a few lingering injuries, but I’m still in the gym helping guys train and doing some coaching as well. I think it is important to disconnect as a fighter because you can make rash and emotional decisions in the moment.”
Stann is 6-5 for the UFC with his other recent losses coming from Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen. Right before Stann joined the UFC, he dropped the WEC light heavyweight championship.
For his loss to Silva, Stann earned Fight of the Night honors. His next move hasn’t been confirmed.
