Proving that God isn’t just picking on EliteXC and the worldwide economy at the moment, here’s a bit more misfortune for the UFC and their ‘For the Troops’ show in December. First they get denied permission to hold the event at Fort Bragg, and now their ultimate military man Brian Stann has been taken off the card with a foot injury.
This is extra suckage for the UFC since Stann’s participation in the military-themed event was quite possibly the catalyst for the WEC’s higher weightclasses into the UFC. They’d been talking about doing it for a while, but when they realized Stann + Troops = mega boner explosion, they went ahead and made the changes a reality. And now Stann’s off the card.
