Curtis: "I love fighting more than I love making love."

UFC American middleweight Chris Curtis explained why he agreed to accept a fight with Brendan Allen on short notice.

The meeting of these fighters will be the main event of UFC Fight Night 240, which will take place on April 6 in Las Vegas, USA.

"I'm very much in love with money. And I'm willing to do terrible things for money. Plus, I love to fight. I love doing it more than anything else. I said it once, I'm willing to say it again now - I love fighting more than I love making love. That's what I do for a living.

Plus, they're giving me a guy who's ranked higher than me as an opponent - you can't turn that down," MMA Junkie quoted Curtis as saying.
