Stann Joins PFL Competition Committee
After leaving the UFC commentary booth in 2017, former WEC champion and UFC competitor Brian Stann has been added to the PFL’s management team.
Stann, who was a color commentator for several of UFC’s cable broadcasts, will head up the PFL’s fighter and competition/rules committee.
According to a press release sent out on Thursday, Stann “will play a major leadership role on the Fighter and Competition/Rules Committee in its efforts to support fighters by developing procedures and making recommendations with respect to competition format and rules, fighter care, and athlete conduct.”
“I couldn’t be more excited that Brian has brought his expertise and passion for MMA to the PFL,” PFL CEO Pete Murray stated. “Brian will be instrumental in helping the PFL build the Fighter and Competition/Rules Committee and fulfill our vision of being a ‘fighter first’ league. His resume is as impressive as his character and he will play an important role in maintaining the standards of professionalism that the PFL brings to the sport.”
Stann would go 12-6 in his career, including a 6-5 record while in the UFC. Stann was also a United States Marine, who was awarded the Silver Star for valor in combat.
“I am excited to be a part of the PFL in its vision to bring a new format and a new platform to professional MMA,” Stann stated. “I know first-hand the dedication, discipline and professionalism it takes to be an MMA athlete, and I am happy to contribute to their ability to compete at the highest level.”
