Coming off of his amazing late-notice victory over highly regarded Rick Story, Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman has verbally agreed to face one of the most powerful men in the welterweight division, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson. The bout will occur at this fall's UFC on Versus 6 event - the date and location will be announced in the coming weeks.

Brenneman was originally on the June 26 UFC Live undercard and bumped to the co-main event on one day's notice when Nate Marquardt was unable to compete. He then fought and beat Story, who had been brought in weeks before to replace Johnson, the original headliner.

Plus, in a rematch of their controversial fight from UFC 115, Ultimate Fighter winner Mac Danzig and "Handsome" Matt Wiman have agreed to fight on that same card, UFC president Dana White confirmed today.

The lightweights' first outing ended prematurely after the referee mistakenly thought Danzig had been rendered unconscious by a choke and halted the bout. The rematch was originally set for last fall, but both men were forced to pull out due to injuries.
