Brian Bowles should be next in line. Should be a good fight I think Im leaning towards Benavidez.

Curran is a tough test for any fighter at 135 and 145. He took Uriahs back and almost finished him.

Benavidez has a world of potential and with Fabers tutelage should be a rising star. However Curran is a very difficult task. A loss for Benavidez in the long run could make him a stronger fighter.

Benavidez is gonna be a stud.

But at this point, I think Curran, who is well rounded and a veteran of the fight game, may be a little too much for him.

I wouldn't be suprised if Joseph came away with win, I just think Jeff may be a little too mucn, too soon.

I will be rooting for Joseph though!

Has potential for a great fight, even though he's on a losing streak, I'm gonna have to pick Curran to win it.

He never had Urijah in danger. With that said, Benavidez is the next big thing at 135. The guy has awesome wrestling and decent/good striking. He's the 135 version of Urijah.
