Former UFC Fighter, at one point #7 in the world for his weight division, Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman
Today's episode we talk to Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman. Why do they call him the Spaniard? Because he was a school teacher who taught Spanish.
And what did he do after that? He fought in probably the toughest organization in the world, the UFC, and became at one point the #7 fighter in the world for his weight class. He also talks about his wrestling career growing up, and how he transitioned that to the UFC, and how now he has to transition again to life after fighting.
I actually read Charlie's autobiography before this episode, so I had a ton of questions for him going in. It's really cool how our lives were pretty similar, just in different sports and different directions.
