So is UFC welterweight Charlie Brenneman for real? Or just real lucky?
After bringing a horrible end to Rick's Story back in June, "The Spaniard" has been awarded with a shot up the rankings and a chance to get himself "in the mix" by taking on Anthony Johnson at UFC on Versus 6 this Saturday night (Oct. 1, 2011) at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
The oddsmakers have tagged Brenneman a slight underdog at +160.
That makes Johnson the favorite at -185 after making it rain takedowns in Seattle, where "Rumble" abandoned his stand-and-bang style in favor of a wrestling based attack that he used to dominate Dan Hardy at UFC Fight Night 24 earlier this year.
It was a much-needed win, seeing as he had been out of the cage for 16 months due to injury
Brenneman may be viewed as a slight step down, at least in name value, but he's a dangerous wrestler and as he's already proven once this year, he has no problem playing spoiler.
And as the oddsmakers have indicated, Johnson's advantage is a slight one. Who takes home the "W" in this battle of up-and-coming welterweights?
