Bart Palaszewski AKA “Bartimus” of IFL fame was informed by Jeff Curran at the grand opening of Currans gym that he had been signed to a 6 fight deal with the WEC. It was an emotional moment for Bart as he thought he was only there to support his long time coach and friend with the opening.

Curran got a laugh from the crowd of over 600 when he said, “I am going to hand the mic to Bart now but please pay attention cuz he has an accent”. Bart said he was excited for the opportunity and looked forward to being a card along side his friend and coach.
