Charlie Brenneman was supposed to be fighting TJ Grant at the UFC on Versus show last night, but Grant got sick and had to pull out of the fight, leaving Brenneman with no opponent.  At first this seemed like bad luck, but it turned into a blessing for "The Spaniard" when Nate Marquardt failed his medicals.  Brenneman stepped him for Nate against Rick "The Horror" Story and put on a great performance, out-wrestling Story and winning a unanimous decision.

Brenneman, who is trained by Mike Constantino out of the AMA Fight Club in New Jersey, is now sitting pretty atop the welterweight division.  His impressive performance will lead to another fight against a contender, and it's possible that Brenneman will be considered for a title shot in the future.

Congratulations to the Spaniard!
