World Extreme Cagefighting has signed undefeated featherweight prospect and one-time IFL fighter John Franchi (4-0) to a five-fight deal.

He's the latest major signing coming out of the New York-based Team BombSquad. Team manager Ryan Ciotoli confirmed the signing with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) over the weekend.

Franchi is the latest in a rash of IFL-fighter signings for Zuffa LLC, the parent company of the UFC and WEC.

With the IFL reportedly just days away from officially ceasing operations, a Zuffa LLC buyout announcement is expected soon.

When you see the quality of the fighters in the lighter divisions, ( below 155) it would be nice to see some smaller weight classes in the UFC.
