Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Rank
Brennan was born in Compton, California but soon moved to Orange County before settling in Laguna Hills and Huntington Beach, California where he spent the next 10 years. Growing up, Brennan claims that he lived in at least 19 different homes and played baseball and soccer but was ultimately more interested in individual sports such as bodybuilding, surfing, gymnastics, and motocross. While working as a bouncer, Brennan saw UFC 1 and was motivated by the dominant performance of UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie. Brennan soon began training with Gracie himself and received his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt in only seven years. Brennan later became the first no-gi Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor in the United States.
