Jeff Curran WEC 34
‘The Big Frog’ Jeff Curran will jump back into action at UFC on Fuel 3 in Virginia where he faces Nova Uniao fighter Johnny Eduardo.

Sources close to the match-up confirmed the new fight to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.

A veteran of nearly 50 pro bouts, Jeff Curran had to fight his way to get back into the UFC and was able to do so at UFC 137 last October. Unfortunately, Curran came up short against Scott Jorgensen so he’ll try to get back to his winning ways this May instead.

Facing Curran in Virginia will be Brazilian Johnny Eduardo, who will also look to avoid losing two in a row.

Eduardo debuted at UFC 134 in his home country of Brazil last year, but dropped a decision to fellow countryman Raphael Assuncao.

Now in May he’ll face Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Jeff Curran in a fight on the UFC on Fuel 3 undercard taking place in Fairfax, VA.
