Charlie Brenneman will take on rising star Erik Silva this Friday at UFC on FX 3.
Silva is coming off a disqualification loss to Carlo Prater for landing punches to the back of his opponent's head. Though Silva got a tick in the loss column for the effort, it was the second straight time that the Brazilian overwhelmed his adversary in the first minute of the fight. Silva has looked mighty impressive during his short time in the UFC.
Brenneman can be seen as the anti-Silva because of the methodical pace at which he fights. Holding a 4-2 record in the UFC, Brenneman is generally regarded as dangerous, though there is no shortage of questions surrounding him.
Uncertainty about Brenneman's ability to deal with top-notch strikers, finish fights, handle adversity and consistently defeat elite fighters will follow him into the cage Friday night.
Additionally, questions about where he stands in the welterweight pecking order will be addressed as he battles Silva.
Here, we will take a look into the questions surrounding Brenneman as he preps for his battle with Silva at UFC on FX 3.
