Spanish Teacher To UFC Fighter: The Everchanging Life of Charlie Brenneman

"My word is Intensity, I live intensely everyday ."
-Charlie Brenneman 

On the most recent episode of my podcast, Unplugged with Brandon Steiner, I spoke with former UFC Fighter Charlie "The Spaniard" Brennaman.

Charlie Brenaman left his hometown and full-time job as a Spanish teacher to pursue a career in Mixed Martial Arts. After upsetting #6 ranked UFC fighter Rick Story, he began getting "The Big Fights" with some of the greatest fighters in the sport. In his post fighting career Charlie has become an Author, a Motivational Speaker, and Inspiration to all of those transitioning throughout different careers.

In this episode we discuss:

  • From being a teacher to becoming a fighter.
  • What UFC means to himself and why he fought in the first place.
  • How the UFC is "The Wild, Wild West"
  • The Shifting MMA 
  • The "Little Guy" who wants something more
  • "Driven:My Unlikely Journey From Classroom to the Cage" 
  • ...and more.
