From the event’s promoter:


ONE MORE CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT ADDED TO UCC 12!
CURRAN vs. MENJIVAR
THE REMATCH

FOR THE UCC WORLD SLW CHAMPIONSHIP!


Montreal (Canada) – What is already being billed as one of the best Mixed-Martial-Art fight card in North American history, UCC 12: AdrenalineTM will again take it one step further with today’s announcement. JEFF CURRAN has become the #1 contender for the UCC World Super Lightweight championship by knocking-out highly ranked grappling sensation Baret Yoshida back in September at UCC Hawaii. Since then, Curran kept improving while winning to earn a spot in the Top-10 rankings in his weight class.

At the other end of the continent a young El Salvadorian-born superstar is raising eyebrows with spectacular wins while building an incredible 10 and 1 record. At only 21 years of age, IVAN MENJIVAR is one of the hottest 145 pounds fighters in the world today. His intense wrestling abilities coupled with his always improving boxing skills make him one of the most unstoppable forces in this division today. Training full time with the likes of UCC World Middleweight Champion David Loiseau and UCC Canadian Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre, Menjivar is yet another superstar coming out of Montreal, Canada.

This will not be the first time these two have met in the UCC ring. Back in June 2002 at UCC 10, Ivan Menjivar scored the upset of the night by defeating Curran by unanimous decision in an all-out war. Since their first epic battle at 155 pounds, both athletes have since made the permanent drop to the Super Lightweight division. This should make for an even more exciting battle as two of the best Super Lightweight fighters in the world collide for the title at UCC 12: Adrenaline.

The fight world will be watching closely as David "The Crow" Loiseau faces yet another big step in his young career in the form of Anthony "The Freak" Fryklund. Fans and experts from abroad are anxiously awaiting the result of Bang Ludwig vs. Little Evil Pulver to finally determine who is the best pound for pound striker in MMA. The long awaited grudge match between John Alessio and Jason Black is one not to miss. When the Lion Heart Steve Vigneault and BAMM BAMM Jermaine Andre clash it is sure to blow the roof off of the Pierre Charbonneau Center. UCC fans are all looking forward to what the Machine Hominick will do to his next challenger. Stay tuned for more information on this great event!
