I got a call on Saturday night from UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva, and after we talked about his awesome mancave in his basement… he asked how I was feeling. Told him I was healthy and training hard and looking to fight. He was happy and said he had someone for me. I am fighting Curt Warburton.
Curt has had two fights in the UFC, and is 1-1. He lost a decision to Spencer Fisher in his debut and is coming off a win over Maciej Jewtuszko. Curt is out of Liverpool, England and trains with Michael Bisping.
The fight will be June 26th, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Training starts… yesterday.
