With the successful brother tandem of Jim and Dan Miller, the UFC has signed another talented fighter out of the AMA Fight Club. 11-1 welterweight standout Charlie Brenneman has signed with the promotion and will compete for them soon.
Brenneman’s lead trainer and manager, Mike Constantino, made the announcement on Tuesday.
A Division I wrestler out of Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania, Brenneman got his first taste of stardom when he won the first season of the Spike TV show “Pros vs. Joes.”
Working with the Miller brothers, along with Constantino and jiu-jitsu instructor Jamie Cruz, Brenneman has racked up some very solid wins on his way to the UFC. His lone loss came by way of decision to current UFC 170-pounder John “Doomsday” Howard.
“Charlie is one of the hardest working fighters here at AMA Fight Club and has a ton of raw talent and athleticism,” said Constantino about his fighter. “He continues to improve each and every day and I am looking forward to introducing his skills to the world.”
There’s no official word when Brenneman will make his debut, but with the UFC filling up fight cards fast leading all the way up to the summer, it’s likely he’ll find his name on a bout agreement sooner rather than later.
