Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann Planned for UFC 136

via www.5thround.com

That was quick. Earlier today an MMA Junkie report nixed the rumored fight between Chael Sonnen and Lyoto Machida. Now, UFC.com that Sonnen will instead fight Brian Stann. The details:

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.

UFC 136 is expected to take place October 8 and feature a featherweight title main event between Jose Aldo and Kenny Florian.
