In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jason Parillo, the boxing coach of Kailin Curran (4-6 MMA, 1-6 UFC), said that he thinks she should go to Invicta FC due to her recent losses in the UFC. Here are highlights:

On not losing faith in Curran: “With Kailin I know the uphill battle she’s been battling. I’ve been helping her out. They haven’t done Kailin Curran any favors. … She has been put in this position. It’s not been by my choice, but at the end of the day she’s learning on the job. If you ask me about Kailin Curran, she’s still green. I tell her all the time. It’s no offense to her. She’s learning on the job, unfortunately. We all learn on the job, but we learn in the amateurs, we learn in the low-level pros, and we learn on the job to get better. She’s learning on the highest platform that there is, and she’s learning against the best girls in her division. She’s green. I think she’s turned a corner. I think she turned a corner her last fight.”

On wanting her to go to Invicta: “I kind of wanted her to go to Invicta, but it’s kind of hard. She has a decent contract financially with the UFC. You’re going to take a huge pay cut, and if that’s the only way you’re making money it can become a difficult thing. I’m hoping that’s kind of the direction. I would like to see that happen. I would like to help her get control of her career a little bit. Kailin’s running around without a manager right now, and that’s like going to court without a lawyer. That’s kind of why she’s stuck in these positions where she’s fighting 7-0 girls and strong girls and bigger girls and girls that the promotion’s trying to develop, and she’s just out there being kind of a stepping stone.”

On getting her out of her slump: “She’s definitely got heart, and she’s got all the skills in the world. Her mind hasn’t caught up yet, and that’s experience.”
