UFC on Versus 4 Results: Rick Story vs. Charlie Brenneman, Round 1
This one had all the makings of a quick bout—Rick "The Horror" Story was supposed to face Nate "The Great" Marquardt, but instead got what most would agree was an easier challenge in the form of Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman. Meanwhile, Brenneman was originally scheduled to face T.J. Grant, but instead got what most would agree was a much stiffer challenge in the form of Story.
Furthermore, the Horror was fighting for the second time in less than a month so he should've been primed for violence.
And it sure looked like it would be a brief affair out of the gates as Story powered through a takedown before going to work with those active knees and hands.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the stoppage as the Spaniard tallied a couple takedowns (of varying success) to put Story on the defensive, even keeping him on his back for the last couple minutes of the round. In fact, those last 120 seconds and the abuse Brenneman put on Story's body probably stole him the round.
At least it did on my scorecard, which reads 10-9 Brenneman.
