Pennsylvania native, Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman (13-2) will get the opportunity to fight in his home state when he takes on Canadian welterweight T.J. Grant (16-5) at UFC on Versus 4 on June 26 in Pittsburgh.
Brenneman made his UFC debut in March 2010 with a unanimous decision victory over Jason High (13-3). About four-and-a-half months later he suffered his first UFC loss against Johny Hendricks (10-1), then bounced back in January of this year with a unanimous decision over Amilcar Alves (12-3).
Grant’s UFC career has literally been up and down since his debut in April 2009. With a 3-3 record inside the Octagon and coming off a unanimous decision loss to Ricardo Almeida (13-5) this past December, the 27-year-old Nova Scotia fighter is in must-win situation.
UFC on Versus 4 is scheduled to take place at the Consol Energy Center and will feature Nate Marquardt (31-10-2) making his welterweight debut against Anthony Johnson (9-3) in the main event. Check out ProMMAnow.com’s Upcoming Events page for the full line-up.
