Hendricks is 3-0 in th UFC

A welterweight bout is in the works between Johny Hendricks and Charlie Brenneman, a source close to the fight told MMADiehards.com.

The fight will be on the yet-to-be announced UFC 117 card, which is expected to take place on August 7 at the Oracle Center in Oakland, CA. Both fighters have been approached about the fight, and an agreement is expected to be made shortly.

Brenneman (11-1), who trains out of AMA Fight Club, is looking to build off of his successful UFC debut, a unanimous decision win over Jason High at UFC Fight Night: Florian vs. Gomi. The former Lock Haven University wrestler has already made a name for himself on a national level, winning the first season of Spike TV’s ‘Pros vs. Joes.’

Hendricks (8-0) was a four-time All-American and two-time national champion wrestler at Oklahoma State University. The Team Takedown product is 3-0 in the UFC, and actually owns a wrestling victory over Brenneman while the two were in college.
