Former WEC featherweight and bantamweight contender and recent Strikeforce signee Jeff Curran will make his Strikeforce debut against Sam Thao on the undercard of “Fedor vs. Rogers” on November 7, according to Five Ounces of Pain.
The CBS-televised event takes place at Hoffman Estates, Illinois near Chicago and is headlined by Fedor Emelianenko vs. Brett Rogers.
Curran (29-12-1), who signed a multi-fight, non-exclusive deal with the promotion earlier this week, has lost four-straight to notables Urijah Faber and Mike Brown at featherweight and Joseph Benavidez and Takeya Mizugaki at bantamweight.
Thao (4-1) suffered the first loss of his career last July before rebounding with a second-round knockout in May.
