Charlie Brenneman Upsets Rick Story At UFC Live 4

When Rick Story got the call to face Nate Marquardt in the headlining fight at UFC Live 4 on Versus, he thought it was the latest in a series of fortunate circumstances that had been blessing his career. After the events of a whirlwind 36 hours, Story is feeling anything but fortunate.

UFC on Versus 4 results: Charlie Brenneman defeated Rick Story via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).

First of all, Nate Marquardt wasn't medically cleared for the fight and had to be replaced yesterday by Charlie Brenneman. Then the fight got demoted from headline status. Then Story lost to Brenneman. Wow. What a crappy day at the office for Story.

Going into the weekend, Story was looking at a possible title shot with a win over Marquardt. He'd just beaten the world's #3 welterweight Thiago Alves at UFC 130 and was very much a fighter on the cusp of the big time.

For his part, Brenneman improves to 3-1 in the UFC and could be on the contender track with another couple of wins. He showed against Story that he can out-wrestle one of the division's toughest grapplers.
