Brian Stann did many great things for the UFC during his fight career. But the decorated war hero did more on Thursday for the promotion, his fellow fighters and the sport of mixed martial arts in general when he announced his retirement than he did in his seven-plus years as a professional fighter.

Stann, 32, made the announcement during a special broadcast of Ariel Helwani's "The MMA Hour."
