A welterweight contest between Charlie Brenneman and Erick Silva is headed to UFC on FX 3. Silva and Brenneman will be part of the June 8 card with the location and venue expected to be announced soon through the winner of the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown challenge allowing fans to vote on where it will take place.
MMAWeekly was the first to report the match-up.
Silva has won thirteen of his fifteen professional fights but was handed a loss in his latest bout. In the contest, Silva was dominating a bout with Carlo Prater but the referee awarded the match to Prater after ruling some stiff shots from Silva landed to the back of Prater’s head.
The 15-3 Brenneman is 3-1 in his last four UFC appearances including an upset win over Rick Story and recent outpointing of Daniel Roberts.
