"To be honest, winning is the goal. That's what keeps me having a job and making money, but, I want to make Joe Silva happy and I want to get those finishes and I want to get those knockouts and I'm not going to rest until I make that happen."
-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Charlie Brenneman tells UFC.com that he will look to aim for the knockout moving forward in order to keep UFC matchmaker Joe Silva happy. "The Spaniard" got back to his winning ways last night (Jan. 20, 2012), defeating Daniel Roberts at UFC on FX 1 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., via unanimous decision. The win marked his fourth since debuting with the promotion in 2010. However, Brenneman has yet to finish a fight in the Octagon, winning all of his bouts in the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion by way of via unanimous decision. Moving forward, he plans to avoid going the distance and earn finishes in his next outings. Easier said than done. What's your take Maniacs, do you see anything in Charlie's past performances that make you believe he has the ability to finish a fight? If not, what will it take for "The Spaniard" to improve his chances? Brush up on his jiu-jitsu and polish his boxing skills? Or should he just stick to the formula that has gotten him to this point doing what he has best and control the pace of the fight in order to preserve a win at all costs?
