Kyle Noke Drops to Welterweight, Faces Charlie Brenneman at UFC 151


Kyle Noke
A late addition has been made to the upcoming UFC 151 card with former Ultimate Fighter competitor Kyle Noke dropping to 170lbs to face Charlie Brenneman in Las Vegas.

Sources close to the fight confirmed the new bout to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.

Following a quick start after his run on the Ultimate Fighter with three straight wins, Kyle Noke has dropped his last two fights, so now he will try his hand at 170lbs.

The Team Jackson fighter drops down to welterweight after a long career at middleweight, and now returns at UFC 151 to try his hand at a new weight class.

Facing Noke at UFC 151 will be AMA Fight Club fighter Charlie Brenneman who looks to bounce back following a loss to Erick Silva at UFC on FX 3.

Brenneman has gone 2-2 over his last four fights and looks to get back on solid ground as he returns at UFC 151 in Las Vegas.
