Jeff Curran made it official on sunday at the grand opening of his new gym that he is going to drop down to 135lbs and go after the belt. He says he is excited to reinvent himself in this division and now with the most state of the art training center in the country in his pocket, he is ready to knuckle down and win the belt.

This potentially sets up an amazing hometown fight between Jeff and Miguel Torres. “I need to drop down and take a couple good fights at 135 and then if the stars align i would love to have a title shot right here in Chicago”. With Miguel being a native of the Chicago area this would create an very interesting dynamic for a title fight… two hometown legends clashing! We will keep you posted right here on who Jeffs first opponent will be at his new weight.
