Charlie Brenneman, while I liked him somewhat, he didn't belong in the UFC. All he has is Wrestling but he's not all that strong. Granted, I think the early stoppage loss wasn't the opportune time to cut him, but he was on his way out anyway.

Jesus really? The guy had two losses, one of which was a barn burner against Erik ******* Silva a guy they have so much confidence in they are putting him in against Fitch in an attempt to cut him as well.

It wasn't that long ago brennaman was derailed Rick story on a days notice.

Don't use the word boxer and Charlie Brennenmen in the same sentence.

Time to see old glass chin get cracked by Ben Saunders in Bellator.

I would have liked to see him have a couple more fights before this.

When you get stopped in the first round in 3 of your last 4 fights and are an otherwise boring and uninteresting mid level fighter, I don't see the shock and surprise that this guy is getting cut.

My point is all of these college boy wrestlers come into the ufc that think they can box as well as wrestle.

Brennenman, Hendricks, Ellenberger, Chad Mendes, etc, etc. They're all the same generic fighter with no flair or character of their own.

Thank god for the likes of Erick Silva, Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz to keep the WW division interesting.

So you just have a problem with wrestling then? It's like saying all these BJJ fighters think they can box because so,e of them stand. It's a terrible statement. You are talking about something that fighters from all disciplines do but are only singling out wrestling.

So when Condit gets out wrestled all night by GSP, can I say look at these generic scrapers coming to the UFC thinking they can wrestle too?

And college boy wrestlers? That is talking about a boatload of Elite fighters. You can hate them all you want but they aren't going anywhere.

You just prefer strikers. It is painfully obvious.
