Gets new opponent

January 15, 2021
Stamann is now scheduled to face Andre Ewell at the UFC's Feb. 6 event after Merab Dvalishvili (illness) was forced to withdraw, Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Stamann's fight was already pushed back from Dec. 5 due to Davilshvili working his way back from COVID-19 issues and it appears he still wasn't ready. Instead, Stamann will prepare for Ewell, who is riding a two-match winning streak and will get a shot at a ranked opponent on short notice.

Dvalishvili fight scheduled again
BantamweightUFC
January 9, 2021
Stamann is scheduled to face Merab Dvalishvili on Feb. 6, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
The pair were originally scheduled to fight back on Dec. 5, but Stamann was forced to withdraw. It's possible the fight gets delayed again, as Dvalishvili has asked the promotion for a postponement while he works his way back from COVID-19.
No positive test after all
BantamweightUFC
October 22, 2020
Updating a previous report, Stamann has not tested positive for COVID-19, but remains unable to face Merab Dvalishvili as scheduled on Dec. 5, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Stamann doesn't appear to have tested positive for the virus himself, so at this point the likely explanation is that someone in his camp or corner did. It also appears that Stamann is dealing with a back injury, though it's apparently minor enough that he requested the fight simply get pushed back a week. That doesn't appear to be the direction the UFC will go, however, leaving Stamann's immediate fighting future in limbo.

Could fight Dvalishvili on Dec. 5
BantamweightUFC
September 23, 2020
The UFC is targeting a fight between Stamann and Merab Dvalishvili on Dec.5, Greg Rosenstein of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Apparently, the UFC is in the works of having the Georgian fight Stamann on an ESPN+ Fight Night event on Dec. 5 although no official word confirming the fight has surfaced. If the matchup does indeed take place, Stamann will look to bounce back from a loss suffered to Jimmie Rivera this past July while Dvalishvili will be coming off a strong decision win over John Dodson at UFC 252.
Drops decision to Jimmie Rivera
BantamweightUFC
July 15, 2020
Stamann lost to Jimmie Rivera via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
Stamann wasn't anywhere near as sharp as he appeared to be in his unanimous decision victory over Brian Kelleher a little over a month ago. Best known for his wrestling, Stamann had all sorts of issues with the hand speed of Rivera. In the one instance in which he was able to get Rivera to the mat, Stamann accomplished nothing with his positional advantage. Stamann has looked strong for the vast majority of his UFC run but the two best opponents he has faced to date -- Rivera and top 135-pound contender Aljamain Sterling -- have handed him his only two losses with the company. The 30-year-old Michigan native is still searching for a signature victory.
