Charlie Brenneman drops to lightweight in first post-UFC fight

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Former UFC welterweight Charlie Brenneman is moving down to lightweight.

Brenneman, who was recently released by the organization after a UFC 152 loss to Kyle Noke, announced on his Web site recently that he will meet Eric Irvin in a 155-pound bout on Jan. 19 in Altoona, Pa.

Brenneman (15-5) went 4-4 inside the Octagon before his release in September. "The Spaniard" has never fought at 155 pounds before, however, he did wrestle in college at 157 pounds.

Irvin (5-2) has won his last two in a row. He has competed solely on the regional MMA circuit, thus far.

The fight will take place for the Valley Fight League promotion, where Brenneman is 3-0.
