Wrestling fans who follow the world of mixed martial arts should know the name Charlie Brenneman. Known as “The Spaniard,” Brenneman had a number of fights in the Ultimate Fighting Championships and has also held titles in various regional promotions.
On Episode 221 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Brenneman will talk about his new book, Driven: My Unlikely Journey from Classroom to Cage and break down the reasons behind he got into fighting and the reasons why he felt his story was compelling enough to write a book about it.
Brenneman just missed All-American honors his senior year at Lock Haven and went into teaching Spanish in his hometown. Then the first crack at television came with the reality competition series called Pros vs. Joes.
Brenneman will break down the experience and explain why that kickstarted his push into MMA. It's a fun conversation with The Spaniard.
