Sonnen vs. Stann Coming in October

Sonnen vs. Stann at UFC 136
At UFC 136 in October, middleweight contender Chael Sonnen will return to the Octagon for the first time since his epic 2010 battle with Anderson Silva to take on the “All-American” Brian Stann in a bout verbally agreed to Wednesday.

Sonnen was less than two minutes away from defeating Silva and winning the 185-pound title at UFC 117 last August before being submitted by the champion. Stann is on a 3-0 run at middleweight, with a submission of Mike Massenzio and knockouts of Chris Leben and Jorge Santiago.
