UFC Vet Charlie Brenneman Meets Kyle Baker for Vacant Lightweight Crown at CFFC 26
Eight-time UFC veteran Charlie
will lock horns with Kyle Baker/a>
Fury Fighting Championships 26
for the promotion’s vacant
CFFC officials recently announced the pairing, which will take
place at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. on
Aug. 17. The title has been vacant since John
Cholish won the belt by defeating Jameel
Massouh at CFFC9 in 2011 and left the promotion to make his UFC
debut later that year. CFFC 26 also includes a welterweight title
tilt between George
Sullivan and Jesus
Brenneman was released by the UFC after suffering a first-round TKO
defeat to Kyle Noke at
UFC 152. “The Spaniard” is 3-0 since then, besting Eric Irvin,
Castro and Gemiyale
Adkins thus far in 2013. The AMA Fight Club representative is
perhaps best known for beating Rick Story on
short notice at UFC Live 4.
A 32-year-old Virginia native, Baker has competed for a variety of
organizations during his 20-fight professional career. Most
recently, “Alley Cat” knocked out Aung La
Nsang in 24 seconds at CFFC 23 in April. Baker has finished 10
of his 13 career triumphs by knockout or technical knockout.
