The UFC's official site for UFN 21 confirms that welterweight prospect Jason "The Kansas City Bandit" High (9-2) has been signed by the organization to face fellow newcomer Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman (10-1). High revealed the news of the four-fight contract earlier today on his Twitter page.
Although High is coming off a vicious knockout loss to Marius Zaromskis at the finals of the Dream Welterweight Grand Prix back in July, the gifted wrestler and Antonio McKee prodigy has been training hard and keeping a high profile in the Twitter world. The KC Bandit has notable career victories over BJJ phenom Andre Galvao, and UFC vets Kevin Burns and James Giboo.
Brenneman's signing was announced earlier this week by the AMA Fight Club in New Jersey, also home to UFC fighters Dan and Jim Miller. The former D-1 wrestler at Lock Haven University and winner of the first season of Spike's Pros vs. Joes, Brenneman is riding a five-fight winning streak which includes four stoppages.

Kenny Florian vs. Takanori Gomi
Roy Nelson vs. Stefan Struve
Nate Quarry vs. Jorge Rivera
Ross Pearson vs. Dennis Siver
Cole Miller vs. Andre Winner
Yushin Okami vs. Lucio Linhares
