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
Stann was last seen blasting Jorge Santiago on Memorial Day weekend. The win put him at 3-0 in the UFC's middleweight division. Phil Davis forced him to drop in weight following a unanimous decision loss at UFC 109.
There's no word whether Sonnen will adopt Sgt. Slaughter's turncoat gimmick from Wrestlemania VII.
