Bantamweight Miguel Torres has been a fan-favorite for years dating back to his reign as a WEC champion. However, the 31-year old struggled to find the same in-ring success after joining the UFC, going 2-2 inside the Octagon including a brutal knockout to Michael McDonald a few months back.
Now Torres will do his best to recapture some of his former glory under a new organization’s banner after announcing he’d signed with Titan FC. His promotional debut is scheduled for November 2.
“I am excited to continue fighting, to regain my focus and to get back to what made me a champion,” wrote Torres on his personal website. “I have dedicated my whole life to mixed martial arts and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. My passion in life is to be the best that I can be.”
Torres is 40-5 in his career including 23 submissions and nine strike-based stoppages. Among the number of notable foes he’s felled are the likes of Antonio Banuelos, Takeya Mizugaki, Yoshiro Maeda, and Chase Beebe.
