By FCF Staff

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has finalized the line-up for the promotion’s upcoming, June 26th, card in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as it has announced that a welterweight tilt between TJ Grant (pictured) and Charlie Brenneman will be the card’s twelfth fight. UF Live 4 will be hosted by Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center and will be broadcast live on the Versus Network.

Grant (16-5) will be looking to return to the winner’s column after losing by unanimous decision to Ricardo Almeida at UFC 124 in December. Prior to that Grant scored a UD win over Julio Paulino at UFC 119 in September. The Canadian fighter has gone 3-3 to date in UFC competition.

Brenneman (13-2) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Amilcar Alves at the UFC’s second Fight for the Troops event this past January, after being stopped by Johny Hendricks at UFC 117 last August. The AMA Fight Club fighter is 2-1 to date in the UFC; in Brenneman’s Octagon debut last March, he defeated Jason High by UD at UFC Fight Night 21.

The upcoming UFC Live 4 card will feature a welterweight bout between Nate Marquardt and Anthony Johnson in the main event. Some of the other fights that have been confirmed for the card include heavyweight Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo, John Howard vs. welterweight Martin Kampmann, and a featherweight bout between Tyson Griffin and Manny Gamburyan.
