Former UFC heavyweight Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran defeated Anton Talamantes in his light heavyweight debut under the C3 fight promotion in Oklahoma.

After a dominant three-round performance that saw “The Mexicutioner” throw everything but the kitchen sink at his opponent, including a brutal head kick, he walked away with a unanimous decision victory to get his career back on track and bring a new threat to the 205 pound division.

Yesterday, Beltran weighed in at 203, a huge transformation and step forward in his career.

Love it! Hopefully he can put a run together and try his luck in the UFC at a new weight class.

Happy for him! It's hard to see him being back in the UFC though. Bellator needs some LHW's if im not mistaken, he could deffs make a run there!

Why didnt he do this while he was still in the UFC? Seems like a no brainer to me. Same with Yvel.

The way I look at it, cant be any worse than the beatings they were getting at heavyweight.

Man I don't know. I think I would take my chances at HW they might be stronger but they sure as hell are nowhere near as athletic. I don't know. I feel like everyone thinks a middle of the road fighters answer is to drop weight and he will be a better fighter very few guys have that work for them. The lower weights it makes a little more sense but Its seems to me between HW and LHW its a awful idea. You move from being the smaller "quicker fighter" who might give up some power to a weight that your not going to be any stronger and your going to be slower.
