"I really like the match-up. He's not as well known as Anthony Johnson or Rick Story, but I've been working so hard to get my skills better, to increase my level all-around with fighting. When you fight guys like Anthony Johnson, I'm not gonna try to stand with Anthony Johnson, that's common sense. So I like that Roberts is more on my level of striking. He's an explosive athlete, he's got great jiu-jitsu. Against Greg Soto he showed that he's pretty versatile with submissions so it's something I'm gonna work to use my new skills on, but at the same time if I can beat with my game, I'm gonna beat him with my game."
Up-and-coming UFC welterweight Charlie Brenneman, who was thrust into the spotlight with a sensational win over Rick Story, only to see it all taken away in an equally sensational loss to Anthony Johnson, tries to get back into the 170-pound title hunt when he takes on Daniel Roberts tonight (Jan. 20, 2012) at the UFC on FX event in Nashville, Tennessee. Who are you taking in a battle that pits a "Spaniard" versus a "Ninja?" More on Brenneman's trials and tribulations in our exclusive interview right here.
