War hero, retired UFC middleweight, and now former color commentator for the UFC Brian Stann has announced a career change. The news came via his social network.

I wonder if WME/IMG gave him an ultimatum: leave or get fired. Or if the new brass was not what he had envisioned as far as progress for the sport goes?

ugggh...sucks for us. I liked Stann a lot. Taking his statement at face value, working a full time job and travelling 26 weekends out of the year would be rough on the family.

i really liked Stann too, thought he was the least biased and most insightful of the commentators. This probably means we see more of that Grisham guy...he is awful

I also enjoyed Stan's commentary. He helped explain moves from a gym perspective whereas Dom breaks it down more from a technical/planning perspective.

Dom would be a great commentator. Maybe Rashad? Retire and do full-time commentating? Bring in Renallo!! All great options.
