First up in our series, our AJ Hoffman visited with Brian Stann just days before he gets ready to face one of the most polarizing figures in MMA, Chal Sonnen.
Stann is 11-3 and is about to compete in what many consider his toughest challenge yet, inside the octagon. Outside the octagon, Stann is a decorated war veteran who has earned the Silver Star, the nation’s third highest award for valor in combat (hence his nick name “All American”). The former WEC Light Heavyweight champion hopes a win over Sonnen this Saturday at UFC 136 in Houston moves him one step closer to a shot at the title.
You can catch AJ Hoffman live on the Blitz weekdays from 12pm – 2pm on ESPN 97.5 FM.
