Brian Stann Calls It A Career, Takes Job At FOX Sports

Brian Stann is hanging up the 4oz gloves.

It was announced earlier today by the UFC that Stann will be retiring from the sport to pursue a career as an ACC Football broadcaster on FOX Sports South.

“I played football from second grade on,” Stann told Fox Sports. “Then after football, I went to Iraq and was near several explosions, and then there was my eight-year MMA career. I just want to reduce my risk for CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease) so I can enjoy my family. It’s tough.

“As a father of three, I can’t just think about me. It’s not about pride. It’s not about glory. It’s not about personal goals. My No. 1 job in life is [to be] a husband and then a father. That’s not just about providing for them. I want to enjoy every moment with my kids.”

Stann leaves the sport with a record of 12-6 (6-5 in the UFC). The former Marine Captain is a former WEC Light Heavyweight Champion.
