Chris Curtis has competed a total of eight times under the UFC banner, but he has yet to headline a UFC event.

The fighter would like to change that fact and Curtis would like to headline a UFC card that is being held at the UFC Apex.

“Everyone hates the Apex, I like the Apex. I have no issue with the Apex,” Curtis told MMA Junkie Radio. “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.”

Curtis had previously competed in the co-main event of a UFC card, which was a loss to Jack Hermansson at UFC Fight Night 208.

One thing Curtis is also thinking of doing is dropping from middleweight to welterweight.

“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,” Curtis said. “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.”
