Bantamweight Miguel Torres made a name for himself under the Zuffa banner thanks to a slew of entertaining efforts including a WEC title-run and wins over solid opposition such as Chase Beebe, Takeya Mizugaki, and Antonio Banuelos. Now he’ll look to do the same outside of the company’s domain, first inking a deal with Titan FC and now one with the World Series of Fighting.
The WSoF is a newly-formed promotion poised to present a tournament-style format featuring a handful of recognizable competitors with the added bonus of bouts being televised on NBC Sports. Fighters such as Gilbert Yvel and Roger Huerta have also been linked to the organization’s roster.
Torres’ signing was first reported by MMAFighting and has since been confirmed by WSoF officials. He is expected to make his debut on November 4 meaning he will no longer be fighting for Titan FC on November 3 as a result.
The 40-5 Torres has finished 32 of the opponents he’s beaten but is coming off a loss to Michael McDonald. However, he was 3-1 leading up to the defeat and hasn’t fallen to a fighter outside of the Top 10 in nearly a decade.
