Stann KOs Sakara in the 1st

Saturday, April 14, 2012

The first step towards that occurred when he stepped into the cage with Alessio Sakara in Sweden.

Working hard to shore up any holes in his game, Muay Thai being a primary focus of late, Stann used what he has learned to great benefit. He and Sakara briefly went toe-to-toe to start off the fight, but Stann clinched wobbled Sakara with several driving knees.

“I’ve really been working a lot to shore up my holes,” said Stann.

He did that and then some. Sakara fell onto his back from the knees, Stann immediately following up with several heavy punches. The former Marine then dropped into Sakara’s guard, blasting away until a couple short, hard left hands put Sakara’s lights out just long enough for the referee to stop the fight.
