This is it for Jeff Curran (33-13-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC).

After 13 years in MMA, he's made a decision: If he can't get it done against Scott Jorgensen (12-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC), he's hanging up his big-show hopes.

Of course, he's aligned everything in his life to where he has the best chance of succeeding.

But after so many years of sitting on the sidelines and missed opportunities, he's not going to drag things out if his hand isn't raised after the fight, which takes place on the preliminary card of UFC 137.

UFC 137 goes down Oct. 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The first part of the preliminary card, which streams live on Facebook, kicks off live broadcasts on Spike TV and pay-per-view.

This is Curran's second stint as a UFC fighter after a lone loss six years ago. But really, he considers it much longer than that.

"I took a fight with Matt Serra (at UFC 46) on nine days' notice, meaning by the eighth day (I) was doing medicals, and by the seventh day, I was packing my stuff for Vegas," he told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I never really had a chance to be a UFC guy because shortly after that they got rid of the weight class.

I don't think he'll be able to pull it off against Scott.

I love Curran, but he's just not good enough anymore. I think Jorgensen wins pretty easily.
