After losses in his last two tilts the UFC has decided to part ways with welterweight Charlie Brenneman. Brenneman had spent the last two years competing under the organization’s banner, compiling a 4-4 record including a sub-minute knockout loss to Kyle Noke a few weeks ago at UFC 152.

News of the release was confirmed by Brenneman on his Twitter page where he did his best to put a positive spin on the situation, writing, I’m gone but not forgotten. I’ll be back soon! Thanks UFC and Dana White for the opportunities, and especially to all my loyal fans!!!”

The 15-5 Brenneman showed a good deal of promise in his early UFC appearances, picking up wins over the likes of Jason High and Rick Story. However, the 31-year old had fallen in three of his last four fights with each involving a first-frame finish. Also hurting his cause, Brenneman himself never scored a stoppage inside the Octagon.
