It was a great grappling display by Brenneman, and an indication that he's a more talented fighter than his previous performances inside the Octagon have suggested.
Story started the fight with a nice throw, putting Brenneman on the ground, but Brenneman quickly got back to his feet, and he soon took Story down and controlled him for most of the rest of the first round.
In the second round Story threatened with an early submission, but soon it was Brenneman on top and more of the same.
Story was more aggressive going for submissions and attempting to finish Brenneman on the ground, but ended up on bottom when the final horn sounded.
Story, who falls to 13-4, was widely viewed heading into this fight as a future welterweight title contender. Now it's back to the drawing board.
