Former UFC LIghtweight and TUF 5 runner-up Manny Gamburyan, making a drop to Featherweight, likely will make his 145 debut at WEC 41 against John Franchi.

Great move by Manvel Gamburyan. He has a good skillset, but a lot of guys in the UFC's gigantic lightweight division were going to beat him on size alone.

John Franchi is a tough prospect, but Gamburyan should be able to win that fight.

Nice. I think Manny will dominate this fight and do great things at 145.
