Charlie Brenneman Thinks He Can Finish More Fights At Lightweight
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.07.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Charlie Brenneman (19-5 MMA, 4-4 UFC) said that he thinks he will finish more fights now that he's at lightweight. He will fight Beneil Dariush (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 35, which takes place on on the main card that airs on FOX Sports 1 from the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia. The preliminary cards also air on Fox Sports 1, except for two that will stream on UFC Fight Pass.

On getting the call during a New Year's Eve feast: "I no sooner got the second helping of pork, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and hot dogs in my mouth than I got the call from [my manager] saying, ‘What do you want to do Jan. 15?'

On finishing more at lightweight than welterweight: "When I was at 170, as soon as I got these guys on the ground, I didn't want to let them up because I knew the power that they were coming with. At 155, I'm a lot more liberal with going for things. I've had three subs in my past four fights, so I'm going for the finish a lot more."

On considering retirement after his UFC release: "I was in a position where I was able to take six months or a year and be OK and get back to this point. But if I wouldn't have gotten back to the UFC in another six or eight months, I would have had to reevaluate my career."
