Stamann told MMA Junkie: “People were like, ‘Hey, if you want to postpone this, wait a little longer, that’s 100 percent understandable.
“I just thought what most people think, I think, in those situations: ‘What would the person that passed, what would they want me to do?’ And I can say without a shadow of a doubt he would want me to compete.
“He loved watching me compete, and I know that’s what he would want. My heart is absolutely broken. I don’t even know. There’s no words; there’s nothing I can say that makes it any better.
“But my mind is sharp. That kid loved watching me fight. He’s gotta be one of my biggest fans. I’m focused on the fight.
“This isn’t taking away the focus or anything. It’s fuel for the fire. So I’m looking forward to being the best version of myself Saturday night.”
Stamann, who lives and trains in Las Vegas, plans on starting a foundation in his brother’s name, which will benefit youth wrestling programs in West Michigan, where he originates from.
The fighter opened up about the shock death, but promises to “honour” his brother.
