"My word is Intensity, I live intensely everyday ."
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.
