Cantwell vs Stann Rubber Match Added to UFC Fight Night in September

It was a competitive rivalry that began in the WEC, with each man owning a knockout win over the other. On Wednesday, September 16th, former WEC light heavyweight champions Steve Cantwell and Brian Stann will break their tie in the UFC Octagon as part of the stacked UFC Fight Night card at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Also made official for the card is what promises to be an ultra-competitive middleweight showdown between Nate ‘Rock’ Quarry and Tim Credeur, and a welterweight clash pitting Chris Wilson against Mike Pyle.

Tickets for UFC Fight Night, which is headlined by Nate Diaz vs Melvin Guillard and Gray Maynard vs Roger Huerta, are priced at $200, $125, $95, $75, $50 and $35, and are on sale now.

I guess they get to fight as many times as Affliction will have cards.

I don't see any reason Cantwell can't do the exact same thing to Stann as last fight.

Oh f*ck yeah!! This just made my day. I already have tickets to this event and I thought that the card was all but full. Not that I especially like either one I just want to see some good fights. I agree with Kpro, I dont see why Cantwell cant beat him the same way as last time.

Stann does have big power though. Can't forget that. There's a reason Cantwell lost the first fight.

I think Cantwell wins this one easily, he KO'ed last time and has show that he can submit people, Stann seems a little one dimensional. Also I to think their first fight (which occured on my birthday, just saying) was stopped early.

I think if he lost decisivley he should go, but we all know the ufc puts big ratings and $ before anything and they may keep him around for another fight for the troops and if they do I would like to see the UFC bring in doug marshall (who is now on a three fight tear since his loss to stann) for a rematch, that would be some serious fireworks! Oh wait, you meen Stann not Cantwell right?

EDIT: now with the palace fighting championships in limbo (where "The Rhino" was fighting) we might see him in the UFC, I hope anyway.

The UFC must not want to build Stann up. Because I believe if he loses this fight he's gone and I do see him losing this fight. Cantwell is the better fighter and will prove it.
