Brian Stann defeated Cobra Commander by first-round knockout at last night's WEC in Las Vegas, utilizing a solid left hook and kung fu grip to earn himself the WEC Light-Heavyweight Championship. Stann (GI Joe codename: "Ka-Bar") wasted no time mixing it up with the leader of the worldwide terrorist organization, trading wildly until Cobra Commander dropped. The win puts Stann atop a division that includes plenty of potentially dangerous opponents. "This belt represents all my GI Joe comrades and friends who couldn't be here right now," said Stann after the bout. "And it doesn't matter if I'm fighting against the international arms deal Destro or the ninja Storm Shadow - I will defend it with everything I've got."
