Charlie Brenneman Meets Erick Silva At UFC on FX 3
A welterweight bout between two top prospects has been added to the UFC on FX 3 show in the form of Charlie Brenneman vs. Erick Silva.
UFC on FX 3 is tentatively scheduled for June 8, but a location and venue have yet to be revealed by company officials.
Brenneman burst onto the UFC scene and got recognized by fans when he took out the fast rising Rick Story in one of last-years biggest UFC upsets. He went on to face Anthony Johnson in a bout he lost, but recently bounced back with a win over Daniel Roberts to secure his third win in four fights.
Silva will look to rebound from his first UFC defeat. He made headlines and caused a stir amongst MMA fans when he was disqualified at UFC 142 for punching his downed and finished opponent, Carlo Prater, in the back of the head. The decision to not award Silva the victory was very controversial. The loss via DQ snapped his nine-fight win streak.
