The key to Brenneman’s victory was his powerful wrestling background. Brenneman took down Rick Story relatively easy, and managed to keep him there for the majority of time. Story was unable to execute his gameplan, as Charlie Brenneman continued to score points with ground and pound. Story managed to get back on track in Round 3, firing submission attempts off his back and dominating Charlie Brenneman on his feet.
But the result was still the same – Charlie Brenneman via Unanimous Decision (29-28 on all cards). It’s without a doubt the biggest victory in Charlie Brenneman‘s career, that will definitely catapult “The Spaniard” into higher ranks of the UFC Welterweight division. As for Rick Story, “The Horror” lost his six-fight winning streak, and now finds himself far away from fighting for the title.
