Brenneman vs. Johnson Wiki Update Wiki

The eighth bout of UFC on Versus 6 featured an anticipated welterweight matchup between Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman. Brenneman came into the fight off of the biggest win of his career, a late-replacement upset victory over Rick Story, and was 14-2 overall with a 3-1 UFC record. Johnson was 9-3 overall in MMA and 6-3 in the UFC.


Brenneman missed on an early takedown attempt, Johnson sprawled out of another, and Johnson held him down as he delivered some short strikes while working to maintain balance in in extended sprawl position. Johnson send a pair of knees to the body and as he spun around to try and take the back ended up on top in Brenneman's half-guard. Brenneman stood up, ate a grazing head kick that sent him off balance, and Johnson swarmed with some punches as Brenneman turtled up. Brenneman got to his feet with his hands low and immediately ate another head kick, this time directly to the face. Referee Mario Yamasaki immediately called off the fight despite Brenneman appearing ready to defend himself as soon as he hit the ground.


The official end came at 2:49 of the first round for TKO for Johnson. Speaking with Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Johnson commented, "I'm very happy, everybody was talking crap about my last performance with Dan Hardy, so I had to come out and make a statement... Everybody give Charlie Brenneman a round of applause, because the man is a beast."
