Earlier this month, SEAL Team Six secretly invaded Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and killed the man that masterminded the most horrific terrorist attack in United States history. On Saturday night at “UFC 130: Rampage vs. Hamill,” several of the Navy’s badass operatives camouflaged themselves among the 12,816 fans to pack the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Middleweight Brian Stann, a former Marine that’s quickly becoming MMA’s version of G.I. Joe, revealed his fellow military men managed to squeeze in some Octagon action during this fine Memorial Day weekend.
After SEAL Team Six accomplished their unforgettable mission, the former WEC light heavyweight champ knew he couldn’t disappoint in his scrap against Jorge Santiago. Stann stepped to the plate and knocked out the highly talented Brazilian in the 2ndRound. Needless to say, his countrymen couldn’t have been more ecstatic with his performance.
“I did hear those [‘USA’] chants, and obviously it’s a career moment for anybody that can be there in that kind of environment,” Stann shared at the post-fight press conference. “There were a lot of veterans in attendance, including parts of SEAL Team Six, which I don’t think you guys really know about, but they were actually here tonight. So that was an honor.
“[The fans] weren’t cheering for me. That was across the world, in bars and peoples’ houses across America where people were chanting. That’s a credit to be bestowed to the men and women who served our country.”
As for SEAL Team Six, they mysteriously disappeared into the night. Hope you enjoyed The Las Vegas Strip, boys, you certainly deserved it.
Happy Memorial Day, and a special thanks to those that have and are currently protecting the best country on the planet.
