Chris Curtis is back on the winning page by claiming a split-decision win against Marc-Andre Barriault. Chris Curtis has a small request, and that is to participate in 5 round matches at the Apex, as he believes his fighting style is more suitable for that.

The regular 3 round matches don’t put a smile on his face, so he demands a main event fight at the Apex. Chris Curtis is currently ranked 13th in the competitive middleweight division; he could most likely fight someone from the top 10 next.

Chris Curtis on fighting at the UFC Apex

Recently on MMA Junkie Radio, Chris Curtis shared his thoughts on fighting at the UFC Apex and explained why he wants 5 round matches. “Everyone hates the Apex, I like the Apex.

I have no issue with the Apex,” Curtis said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I fought everyone you’ve asked me to fight, and I’ve done well against most of them. Let me main event an Apex card. I’m totally happy.

Let me main event an Apex card. I promise you, give me a five-round fight and let me show you something great. My biggest weakness is that I’m so geared towards five-round fights. Three-round fights are kind of hard to adjust to.

Give me a five-round fight and I will show you something magical.

I think next week we’re going to meet the dietitian and get my body scan done and see what everybody thinks about my weight and whatnot.

I have not made 170 pounds in three years, so it will be interesting to see what they say. I’m about to do that. But even at 185, there’s still (names left). There’s Paul Craig, who’s right above me. I don’t really care who”.
