Brenneman steps in for Riddle, meets Grant at “UFC on Versus 4”
The news was announced by UFC officials earlier today.
At 2-1 in the UFC, Brenneman looks to further build up his stock following a unanimous decision victory over Amilcar Alves at “UFC: Fight For The Troops II.” He debuted with the promotion with a victory over Jason High in March of 2010, but was then defeated by Johny Hendricks a few months later.
Unlike his new opponent, Grant enters this contest coming off a decision loss to Ricardo Almeida at UFC 124. He is now an even 3-3 in the UFC, alternating wins and losses throughout his six-fight career with the promotion.
“UFC on Versus 4” is set for Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s Consol Energy Center on June 26 and features a welterweight main event between Anthony Johnson and Nate Marquardt. A heavyweight tilt between Pat Barry and Cheick Kongo will serve as the evening’s co-main event.
