Welterweight fighter Charlie Brenneman has been cut from the UFC after his back to back losses inside the octagon. Brenneman shared this news via twitter today (October 2, 2012).
Brenneman has lost back to back to Erick Silva and Kyle Noke. Before these two losses, Brenneman made waves in the UFC welterweight division by upsetting rising star Rick Story back 2011.
It appears you can’t keep a good man down because Brenneman vows to put a winning streak together in order to get back to the UFC. Brenneman has competent wrestling skills, but his striking game needs a bit of work if he ever wants to compete in the UFC again.
He may even want to consider dropping down to the lightweight division because he seems undersized for the weight class. This was clearly evident when he faced Erick Silva and Anthony Johnson. The latter was a huge mismatch, considering Johnson now competes at light heavyweight outside the UFC. Brenneman would possess the size advantage and the wrestling advantage against most opponents in the 155lb division, which certainly could bode well for him as he moves on in his MMA career.
