Brian Stann To Team Jackson For Ufc Debut


As Brian Stann readies himself for a move from the WEC to the UFC starting with a Dec. 10 UFC Fights for the Troops showdown against old foe Steve Cantwell, the former Marine will prepare for the bout with Greg Jackson and his team in New Mexico.

The fight between Stann and Cantwell will be the third in a series of fights that has seen each of them pick up a TKO victory.

Following a disappointing performance in his last fight, Stann had a conversation with Greg Jackson that convinced him the team in New Mexico was the best place for him to continue to learn and prepare for future fights.

“I met Greg here in Atlanta and we really just hit it off right off the bat. He was just really excited about the possibilities of training me and I think for any fighter that makes you excited,” Stann said in a recent interview with “For me that was just flattering and motivational at the same time. So I went down there and I was down there for a while and I just really gelled. There’s no egos. It’s just a lot of good guys that are helping each other to our common goals, and I really, really liked it.”

A great number of fighters have started to see the benefits of working with Team Jackson including No. 1 UFC light heavyweight contender Rashad Evans, who credits Jackson and striking coach Mike Winklejohn with the gameplan to help him beat Chuck Liddell recently.

Other fighters such as Georges St. Pierre have also sought out Jackson to help them get ready and map out a strategy to pull off a win in their fights.

While the move to Team Jackson is a great step for Stann, he insists there was no ill will leaving his last camp. It was just a change he wanted to make.

“Every fighter is different and every fighter kind of finds his niche where they feel most comfortable at,” commented Stann. “I think that’s what’s best for me right now.”

The fight with Steve Cantwell will take place at Fort Bragg, N.C. on Dec. 10, so Stann is getting ready to pack up and leave for Team Jackson very soon to begin his training camp.

“I’ll be leaving for New Mexico again in two weeks and that’s where I’ll be for the entirety before the fight,” Stann said in closing.
