Well safe/boring got him cut. He had lost twice and was an exciting fighter he wouldn't of been cut. So I don't exactly see where it is smart to play the safe boring game.
But Brenneman just had little skill. He wasn't gong to develop any great striking. He was lucky to make it to the big leagues. He had to try and lay and pray because that was literally all he had.
He is what he is. He had to scratch and dig to get to the UFC. Perhaps he finds a BJJ game while he is away and wins several in a row and makes it back as that underdog again.
I agree fully with the UFC that an exciting fighter who puts it all out there should get a loss or 2 more leeway than a guy who is holding on for wins and sparks very little fan interest.
This thread right here is more excitement over Charlie than he has seen at any point in his UFC career.
