Brian Stann says he'll be the analyst on future UFC on FOX shows

The power of fans compels Dana White.

After seeing how great UFC middleweight Brian Stann was as a guest analyst on the UFC on Fuel TV 1: "Sanchez vs. Ellenberger" broadcast this past Feb. 15, 2012, apparently the powers that be have decided he deserves an expanded role.

From "All American's" official Twitter account:

"Huge thanks to all the fans who have supported me after the Fuel broadcast. Looks like I will be doing the Live Fox shows now. Power of fans."

To those who watch with a critical eye (ahem) this is welcome news. The UFC debuted on FOX with Brock Lesnar and Dana White serving as analysts to decidedly mixed results. The second show wasn't much better, with Randy Couture doing a decent enough job but Jon Jones absolutely bombing on live TV.

Stann, meanwhile, was calm, cool and composed while providing insight without sounding as though he was unsure of himself. In fact, if one didn't know better, one might think he's a seasoned veteran with a microphone in his hand.

For my money, Curt Menefee, Couture and Stann should be a permanent team. How about you, Maniacs?
