According to Heavy, Brian Stann vs. Mike Massenzio is in the works for UFC on Versus 2. Stann confirmed on his twitter that the bout will take place in the Middleweight division. Stann was in favor of dropping down to 185 after dropping a unanimous decision to Phil Davis at UFC 109. Massenzio hasn't fought since UFC 92, losing via TKO to CB Dollaway. UFC on Versus 2 is scheduled for August 1, 2010 from the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I like this move a lot for Stann. I think middleweight ought to be good for him. He has a lot of potential but I was never sold that he could be a top contender at light heavyweight. This ought to be a decent litmus test to see how he will fare at MW.

This is the right match up for him at MW...I though Irvin had the right match up at MW too, but wow....he was not able to afford the cut! I hope Stann has lost the weight properly and can stand on his own two feet come fight time.

Good call, Jae. I'd forgotten about Irvin's horrible transition to MW. I think that Stann with his military background will be smarter about the things he does than Irvin. He's probably way stricter with his regiment and training than Irvin. I think Stann will be fine.
