Brian Stann may very well be the most humble guy competing in mixed martial arts today. This is a man who’s been there, done that and saved a few lives along the way. As a fighter, he’s already accomplished some impressive feats like winning a WEC title and handily disposing of Chris Leben, Jorge Santiago and Alessio Sakara.
The man even owns a Silver Star for heaven’s sake. For those that don’t know, that’s the nation's third-highest award for valor in combat.
This is a guy who has, by all accounts, earned the right to behave anyway he feels. If he wanted to walk around with his nose in the air and his mind far from the insignificant civilians, he could, and no one would say a thing about it.
But Brian Stann doesn’t walk around with his nose in the air, and he doesn’t think he’s any better than the next man. He’s a compassionate fighter who competes to be the best, not to intentionally inflict an absurd amount of punishment on his opponents, not to showboat and not to throw his accomplishments in anyone’s face.
The “All American” redefines the humble fighter.
