Castillo gets Brenneman for UFC 172

Lightweights Castillo and Brenneman meet in Baltimore...

With original opponent Isaac Vallie-Flagg now meeting Takanori Gomi at UFC 172 on April 26, Danny "Last Call" Castillo will have a new dance partner in Baltimore, as he squares off with Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman in a lightweight matchup verbally agreed to Wednesday.

Winner of five of his last seven bouts, Castillo is coming off an exciting three rounder with Edson Barboza last December that resulted in a majority decision defeat, but a Fight of the Night bonus as well. Against fellow wrestler Brenneman, who has won four of five since a 2012 loss to Kyle Noke, he will seek a return to the win column.
