Jeff CurranJeff Curran entered the arena for XFO 39 with his manager holding a blue UFC hat high in the air and pointing to the logo. Curran wants badly to be back in the world’s biggest proving ground for MMA, so much so that after his decision win over Billy Vaughan at XFO 39, Jeff Curran told the crowd that he was going to the UFC or he was calling it a career.

Many were surprised by that statement. Curran has been in the game for a long time, but he is only 33 years old and has won 4 of his last 5 fights. So I followed up with Jeff via e-mail and asked him about his XFO 39 post-fight comments.

“I wasn’t frustrated with Billy,” Curran said. “I am a “Play safe” fighter when I don’t know much about them. He was punching hard and hasn’t been KO’d from what I know. My hard shots weren’t affecting him much. Either way, I meant what I said. I have won 4 of my last 5 fights actually and UFC is interested in me. Just not sure when. So, I am gonna sit back and wait. UFC or BUST!”

It’s good to hear that the UFC is interested because Curran has too much to offer to the fight game to call it a career. There are still plenty of fights out there for him.
