Leonard Garcia to move to WEC Featherweight division
It looks like Leonard Garcia (10-3, 1-2 UFC) is the next UFC lightweight to move to the WEC featherweight division following the likes of Jens Pulver. Here's what his trainer, Greg Jackson, had to say about the move to 145:
"Leonard (Garcia) is such a great fighter and a strong guy, but he walks around at like three pounds over weight," said Jackson about his fighter's move to featherweight. "He had to eat the morning of the weigh-ins the last time. We've got to bring him down a weight class where he's going to be more effective."
While I think they need to bolster the ranks of the other divisions it seems like the 145 lb. division of the WEC is going to be the place to be to fight the best in the world.
