Here is a photo of the “Big Frog” hours before he prepares to step on the scales to weigh in for his pro boxing bout tomorrow night. If anyone doubted that Curran could make the weight… let’s erase that now. Curran says he feels good at this weight and has been walking around at 147lbs comfortably. “I am determined to get the WEC bantam weight title” Curran said. That title is currently held by fast rising star, Miguel Angel Torres who has an impressive record of 33-1.
Curran said in an earlier post on SuckerPunch, “I really respect Miguel but at the high Levels of BJJ it comes down to who plays the game better. In MMA, that changes even more. All i can say is Torres is a stud but i would never be worried about going to the ground with him. I am a solid black belt and i am as confident as i should be. Miguel is the same way. This is what makes our fight so interesting. Not to mention we are good friends but because we have always known the possibility of this fight, we never trained together. I will prove myself at this weight then hopefully WEC gives me Torres when the time is right. I promise to deliver.”
