Thirty-year-old Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman will get to fight inside the UFC Octagon in his home state of Pennsylvania for the first time on June 26.

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.

TUF 7 vet Matt Riddle (5-2) was originally scheduled to fight Grant but was forced to pull out due to injury according to a Friday report from UFC President Dana White.

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’s Upcoming Events page for the full line-up.
