Brian Stann: Operation Matador (Video)

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

Brian Stann driving forward
Before he was a UFC middleweight contender, Brian Stann proudly served his country as a member of the United States Marines.

On Tuesday night, Fuel TV ran a special segment during the UFC Insider show that featured Stann telling the story about how he received the Silver Star for valor in combat.

One of the most harrowing tales ever told, Stann recounts the 2005 mission in Iraq in this video from the show.

    Stann is the man. He’s come a long way, both as a fighter and overall MMA personality in the last few years. Sky’s the limit for that guy.

    I think Brian should be the permanent UFC fighter featured on the UFC pre fight and post fight shows. He’s brilliant in that role.

    And what a courageous story too BTW.
