"I think it's impossible to focus 100-percent of my time on fighting. I think it would be a mistake if I did. No fighter does, trust me. I don’t care how hard they say they train. There are only so many hours they can actually physically train. I’d say 90-percent of the fighters are off playing video games most the day. Between practices they aren’t doing a lot of constructive things with their time. For me I’m just a busy body. I’m training 2, 3, 4 times a day and between those sessions I’m running this organization and doing other things. My mind needs to be occupied and it’s a good thing for me to have that relief and to have something else besides fighting because I think when a fighter only has that it actually becomes too stressful for him. They over-think the fight and they fight a little bit more stiff then they should."
UFC light heavyweight Brian Stann doesn't believe that a fighter can be successful inside the cage without having a life outside of it. "All American" keeps himself busy by volunteering for Hire Heroes USA while also training for his Aug. 1 fight against Mike Massenzio at UFC on Versus 2 in San Diego. Will the former soldier take the hill at the San Diego Sports Arena? Or will Massenzio issue him a dishonorable discharge?
