Brian Stann’s upcoming fight with UFC veteran Chris Leben is the biggest so far in his career, and this 30-second preview for UFC 125 confirms it. After the two fighters in the main event are shown — lightweights Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard — Stann and Leben are featured next.
This non-title middleweight fight will be the first time in Stann’s five-fight UFC career that he’s been on the main card of a pay-per-view event. That means that unlike his previous UFC fights, this one will be guaranteed to be televised.
Leben (11-5 in the UFC) comes into the bout on a three-fight winning streak, while Stann is 1-0 since switching from the light heavyweight division to middleweight. He’s 3-2 overall since joining the UFC.
UFC 125 is Jan. 1, 2011 in Las Vegas.
