Charlie Brenneman released by UFC (again) following three-fight losing streak

"The Spaniard," better known as UFC veteran Charlie Brenneman, will have to work his way back up the ladder on the regional MMA scene following his second pink slip from UFC brass in the span of two years.

Three-fight losing streaks inside the Octagon rarely bode well for a fighter, and Charlie Brenneman unfortunately knows that scenario all too well as he was once again released by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

"The Spaniard" today (Dec. 30, 2014) confirmed his second release from UFC in the span of two years following three consecutive finish losses to Beneil Dariush (UFC Fight Night 35), Danny Castillo (UFC 172), and most recently Leandro Silva (UFC Fight Night 56).

From his official Twitter:

The affable Brenneman was first cut from UFC back in October 2012 following a 1-3 skid, but four victories on the regional mixed martial arts (MMA) circuit earned him a spot back on UFC's roster in early 2014.

With "The Spaniard" unable to secure a victory upon his UFC return, the Pennsylvania native will either have to continue his MMA career regionally -- or hope the promotion needs another emergency fill in on 24 hours notice.
