Brian Stann joins PFL to lead Fighter and Competition/Rule Committee

May 17, 2018

The Professional Fighters’ League announced that Brian Stann has joined the  promotion on the Fighter Competition/Rules Committee.

Via PFL press release:

The Professional Fighters League (“PFL”) today announced that former MMA star and veteran Brian Stann will help lead the league’s 2018 Fighter and Competition/Rules Committee, bringing his expertise to the first “true sports format” MMA league. Stann will play a major leadership role on the Fighter and Competition/Rules Committee in its efforts to support fighters by developing procedures and making recommendations with respect to competition format and rules, fighter care, and athlete conduct. Under Stann’s leadership, the Committee will play an important role in the “fighters first” league as it debuts its 2018 regular season live on Thursday, June 7, at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

In 2017 Stann left his post as a commentator for UFC events to pursue a position as a COO at a real estate firm and also going to school to pursue his Masters in Business Administration.

Payout Perspective:

Stann’s addition brings a level of credibility to a promotion that desperately needs to have a great year for a multitude of reasons.  We will see how much of a role he has once the PFL events begin and whether he will remain on with the promotion.
