Recently retired UFC fighter Brian Stann is already edging his way into the broadcast booth, taking over color commentary duties for Joe Rogan at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie.
UFC Tonight on Tuesday announced Stann taking Rogan’s position at the upcoming show slated for Aug. 3 in Rio de Janeiro.
It’s for one night only, not a permanent displacement.
UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo puts his belt and 15-fight winning streak on the line against Chan Sung Jung, aka the Korean Zombie, in the night’s main event at HSBC Arena.
Stann recently announced his retirement from fighting to continue his pursuits in broadcasting.
He’s a staple as a commentator and analyst on various UFC related programs on the Fox Networks and recently landed a position as part of the ACC football broadcast team on Fox Sports South.
Stann’s last fight was knockout loss at the hands of Wanderlei Silva at UFC on Fuel TV 8 on March 3 in Japan.
