He got off to a great start, and now he's just waiting for the call.

Brazilian prospect Yuri Alcantra is dropping to the featherweight class in anticipation of his UFC debut, manager Wallid Ismail today told MMAjunkie.com.

Alcantra brought his current win streak to 11 when he notched a first-round knockout of Ricardo Lamas this past December at the WEC's final event, WEC 53.

The guy looked good against Lamas, And he didn't even look like a small 155. Excited to see what he could do at 145.
