Jeff Curran To Move To WEC Bantamweight Division

Jeff Curran spoke to Sherdog.com recently and announced his intent to move to the WEC Bantamweight division. From the article:

“I think I match up very well with a lot of guys in the WEC; they’ve got a lot of strikers and I think I’m going to put on some phenomenal wars,” he said. “If I get two really good shows, really good fights against ranked opponents, I think I’ll be able to get a title shot.”

Curran’s move down to the WEC’s 135-pound division will help to “reinvent” the 30-year-old veteran, he said.

“I think that the fast pace and the real high technical level is a great fit for me,” said Curran (30-10-1). “The talent pool in that division is sick.”
