TUF Finalist Manny “Anvil” Gamburyan will drop down to the World Extreme Cagefighting’s (WEC) featherweight division, according to MMAWeekly.
Gamburyan loss his last two fights in the UFC – First to Rob Emerson via 12 sec flash KO at UFC 87 and most recently to Thiago Tavares at UFC 94.
“I don’t know if the cut is going to be hard or easy — I haven’t made 145 in almost 10 years — but I’m going to do it in a good way”
“There are a lot of good guys at 145 also … Mike Brown, Leonard Garcia, Urijah Faber, Jens Pulver. But I think my ability to drop to 145 — I’m going to be a lot stronger, and quicker. At 155, my technique is my advantage, because the day I’m fighting, I’m 160, 162. The guys are outweighing me by at least 20 pounds every fight, so I don’t think that’s fair.”
“I’ve never been this excited in my life,”
No exact date has been set for his WEC debut, but he expects to fight sometime in May or June depending on the WEC schedule.
