Not content with merely adding fights to their roster this weekend, the UFC has added an entire event to its lineup. Welterweights Charlie Brenneman and Anthony Johnson have signed to duke it out on October 1st. Joining them on the card will be the very necessary rematch between Matt Wiman and Mac Danzig.
Brenneman was the only real winner of the sordid Marquardt TRT saga last month. “The Spaniard” snuck onto the UFC Live 4 card the day before the event, when Marquardt was pulled from his match with Rick Story due to unacceptably elevated testosterone levels. Brenneman had been toiling away on the undercard prior to scoring the upset victory over Story. Anthony Johnson was originally slated to take on Marquardt in that bout, but he was sidelined by rotator cuff injury. After a long injury lay-off, Rumble returned to action last March with a win over Dan Hardy.
A bit about Wiman-Danzig, and more details of the event, are after the jump.Read More ADD COMMENTS (5) DIGG THIS
