This choice may come as a shock in some ways, but not if you really think about it.
Having guys like Overeem and Lesnar standing next to you foaming at the mouth is a great thing, but their size is also their downfall. If your attacker is quicker than them, their effectiveness goes out the window.
You need a fighter who looks intimidating, can back it up in ability and is not too big or small for their size to be an issue.
Brian Stann is the man for the job.
Let’s start with the visual, since it will be what your attacker sees first. Brian Stann is a fit guy. While not as ripped at some other fighters, he still has a strong presence. What puts him over is his infamous jawline.
If Phil Davis is an action figure, then there is no way Brian Stann can’t be considered the G.I. Joe of the MMA world.
Stann was a decorated Marine who knows combat in all walks of life, which brings us to his mental fortitude. Mentally, he cannot be fazed by any challenge. He welcomes them or issues them, nothing else. He has a great amount of heart and drive, and someone with that devotion is a dangerous man.
In his hands, he has knockout power. His striking is ever-improving and his overall fight game is evolving. He is a very humble and nice guy, which makes him a great companion as well as a bodyguard.
But rest assured, when it is business time, he is ready to go.
