11:37 AM ET 07.11 | During a breaking news edition of "The MMA Hour" with Ariel Helwani, UFC middleweight Brian Stann announced his retirement from mixed martial arts. Stann walks away from the sport at just 32 years old. With his third child on the way and other career opportunities available, Stann thought it was the appropriate time to focus on being the best father and husband he can be by walking away from the sport he loves. Stann also noted that fear of medical issues was also a reason for his decision to walk away. With his focus turning toward his family, Stann says it wasn't the best decision to continue putting his body under additional punishment and stress.
