wec-logo1.jpgWEC light heavyweight champion Brian Stann was a guest on the Howard Stern show today and revealed that his next fight will be taking place on a WEC card on August 3.

According to Stann, he will defend his title against Steve Cantwell.

The fight will actually serve as a rematch, as Stann and Cantwell fought at WEC 26 in March of 2007. Stann, 6-0, TKO’d Cantwell at 41 seconds of round 1.

Since losing to Stann, Cantwell has gone 2-0 with wins over Justin McElfresh at WEC 29 last August and against Tim McKenzie at WEC 33 this past March.

Cantwell has five wins on his pro record with the only loss of his career coming against Stann.

Stann won the title from Doug Marshall at WEC 33 on March 26. His fight vs. Cantwell will be his first-ever title defense.

    At some point Stann may have to take fights outside the WEC to further his career. WEC is stacked in lower weight classes, but the heavier they go the thinner the ranks. Repeatedly fighting the same guys won’t sell tickets in the long run, either.

  • Kimmie says:

    Well! I am in still some state of shock that cantwell was able to knock out stann! That was an impressive fight from the very beginning, but cantwell noticed that once he had stunned the former champ he took full on advantage of it!
