Brian Stann Targeted For UFC On FOX Analyst Role

If you happened to watch the ‘UFC On Fuel TV 1’ post-fight coverage last week you may well have been impressed by Brian Stann’s performance as an analyst.

‘The All-American’ quickly showed he was a natural in front of the camera – confident, quick of thought and knowledgeable, he breezed through his first live broadcast.

The good news for the former war hero is that the UFC themselves were so taken with him that they’ve promoted him to doing analysis for their future ‘UFC On FOX’ shows.

“Huge thanks to all the fans who have supported me after the FUEL broadcast,” Stann wrote on his Twitter account. “Looks like I will be doing the Live FOX shows now. Power of fans.”

Stann will take over from the likes of Brock Lesnar, Randy Couture and Jon Jones who’ve already had the opportunity to be an analyst at the first two FOX events.

This doesn’t mean that Stann’s fighting career is over however. In fact he’s currently scheduled to face Alessio Sakara at ‘UFC On Fuel TV 2’ in April.
