Former UFC welterweight Charlie
Brenneman has signed a three-fight contract with the New
Cage Fury Fighting Championships.
Sherdog.com Friday verified the signing with Arias Garcia, CFFC
matchmaker and general manager, who also revealed that the
promotion has signed onetime UFC featherweight and former CFFC
Gambino to a multi-fight deal. Brenneman is expected to make
his promotional debut at CFFC 23, which takes place April 12 from
the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, Pa.
Brenneman made the cut to lightweight following his release from
the UFC last year, debuting at 155 pounds on Jan. 19 under the
Valley Fight League Banner. “The Spaniard” earned a finish for the
first time in three years, submitting Eric Irvin
with a second-round rear-naked choke. Brenneman, 32, owns eight of
his 16 career victories via decision and holds notable victories
Alves and Jason
Gambino, 24, saw his perfect professional record ruined during his
two-fight UFC stint, which resulted in a pair of defeats last year.
“The Raging Warrior” was first submitted by a Steven
Siler guillotine choke on June 22 and then outpointed by
hard-hitting “TUF 14” winner Diego
Brandao, who took a unanimous decision from Gambino on Oct. 13
at UFC 153.
