Erick Silva vs. Charlie Brenneman at UFC on FX 3



Erick Silva will venture out of Brazil for his next challenge in the UFC as he faces Charlie ‘The Spaniard’ Brenneman at UFC on FX 3.

Sources close to the contest confirmed the new bout to MMAWeekly.com on Saturday. SporTV.com first reported the fight.

With an impressive 13-2 record, Erick Silva has looked unstoppable through two fights thus far in the UFC, albeit two very short performances.

Silva blasted through Luis Ramos in his first fight and did the same to Carlo Prater in his second bout, but unfortunately his win was overturned due to shots to the back of the head of his opponent.

Now Silva will try to officially pick up his second UFC win as he faces an American born wrestler with plenty of Octagon experience in his back pocket.

Charlie Brenneman is known as one of the toughest competitors in the UFC welterweight division, and also one of the top wrestlers.

Brenneman has gone 3-1 over his last 4 fights including a last minute bout against Rick Story, when he stepped in for Nate Marquardt who was removed from the card on the day of weigh-ins.

Brenneman will face Silva at the UFC on FX 3 card taking place on June 8, but currently the location for the event has not been announced. The UFC is holding a Harley-Davidson contest to determine the city for the event, but a final decision should be released soon.
