TUF Finalist Manny “Anvil” Gamburyan will drop down to the World Extreme Cagefighting’s (WEC) featherweight division, according to MMAWeekly.
â€œI donâ€™t know if the cut is going to be hard or easy â€“ I havenâ€™t made 145 in almost 10 years â€“ but Iâ€™m going to do it in a good wayâ€
â€œThere 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 â€“ Iâ€™m going to be a lot stronger, and quicker. At 155, my technique is my advantage, because the day Iâ€™m fighting, Iâ€™m 160, 162. The guys are outweighing me by at least 20 pounds every fight, so I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s fair.â€
â€œIâ€™ve never been this excited in my life,â€
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.
