Kyle Noke-Charlie Brenneman Moved to UFC 152; Dan Miller Out, Sean Pierson Awaiting New Foe
A planned UFC 151 welterweight contest between Kyle Noke
has found a new home at UFC
Promotion officials recently confirmed that the bout has been moved
to the Sept. 22 event, which takes place at the Air Canada Centre
in Toronto. Additionally, Sean Pierson
now awaits a new opponent after foe Dan Miller
withdrew from their pairing. UFC 152 is headlined by a light
heavyweight title collision pitting Jon Jones
Belfort and will also feature a flyweight title tilt between
Johnson and Joseph
Benavidez in the evening’s co-main event.
Noke, 32, makes his welterweight debut against Brenneman after
dropping back-to-back bouts at 185 pounds, submitting to Ed Herman last
year before suffering a unanimous decision defeat to Andrew
Craig on March 3 at
UFC on FX 2.
Brenneman, 31, has struggled to find consistency in the UFC’s deep
welterweight waters, posting a promotional record of 4-3 in his two
years with the promotion. “The Spaniard” last competed on June 8 at
UFC on FX 3, submitting to an Erick Silva
rear-naked choke in the first round.
Pierson was also last seen at UFC on FX 3, where he rebounded from
consecutive losses to take a unanimous decision from Jake Hecht.
Prior to that victory, “The Punisher” had dropped bouts to Jake
Ellenberger and Dong Hyun
Kim to go winless in 2011.
