After the folding of the WEC light heavyweight division earlier today, MMAWeekly.com has learned that two of the companies LHW's, Champion Steven Cantwell and nememis Brian Stann will be making their UFC debuts on the December 10th UFC for the troops event.
Stann talks about the bout to MMAWeekly.com:
“They were talking to me about a rematch right after I lost that fight, so I was already excited about that and I thought it was going to be Dec. 3 in Vegas, so I’d be fighting Steve (Cantwell) in his hometown for the third time,” Stann said in an exclusive interview with MMAWeekly.com. “It was kind of like a tear in my heart because all of a sudden I was watching Spike TV and watching the Fight Night and they announced this special featuring the Fallen Heroes Fund and it’s going to benefit TBI (traumatic brain injury) patients.
“I have so much experience with my guys that suffer from TBI and to get to fight on a military base. I was in Iraq when they fought on the marine base last time so I didn’t get a chance to fight or even be there, and I just thought this is a dream come true.”
