Marine Is Used To Fighting For His Life

Marine Is Used To Fighting For His Life
By Chris Dixon


When asked to assess his state of mind before stepping into a steel cage for a fight, Brian Stann provides a matter-of-fact reply that also stands as a stark warning.

“For me, I think it’s probably different from other mixed martial arts fighters,” said Stann, a 26-year-old first lieutenant in the Marines. “I’m used to a fight that’s for my life.”

In May 2005, Stann and some fellow members of the Third Battalion, Second Marine Division, faced machine guns, suicide bombers, improvised explosive devices and rocket-propelled grenades in a fight to control the area around a bridge along the Euphrates River in Iraq. The battle earned Stann a Silver Star, the military’s third-highest award for heroism.
