Popular bantamweight Miguel Torres has been on a roller-coaster ride career-wise over the past few years, peaking in 2007-2008 during a title-winning run in WEC before suffering the only stoppages of his 43-fight career in back-to-back bouts. After the plunge downward, Torres recovered in his UFC debut earlier this year to pick up a decision victory over Antonio Banuelos before being outpointed in his next outing by Demetrious Johnson.

Up next for Torres is a bout this weekend at UFC 139 against sacrificial lamb Nick Pace with the added loopty-loop of being on the Facebook portion of the card rather than the televised/PPV broadcast. However, rather than fret about his circumstances, Torres has used the situation as motivation to remind MMA fans of how talented a fighter he actually is.

“It should give me a push and it should make me angry, but it doesn’t,” said Torres of his spot on the lineup in an interview with the UFC’s website. “I’ve done a lot for the sport, especially for my weight class ”” I’ve headlined a lot of cards, and I’ve been at the top of the billboard a lot, and to get pushed all the way down like this is one of those things where people are forgetting who I am and what I’m all about. I’ve got to go out there and make an example of my opponents, and make people realize who I am again.”

“When I found out where I was fighting, I wasn’t upset,” Torres continued. “It was one of those things like when you know your girlfriend is cheating on you and you just have to get even, and that’s what I’m planning on doing.”

The extra fire in the 30-year old’s belly should spell bad news for Pace who is 1-2 under the Zuffa banner and has a fifth of Torres’ ring-time. In fact, Torres made it clear he’ll be looking for the finish come Saturday night.

“I’ve got to go out there and take care of business. I can’t let it go to the judges’ hands, and I don’t want to go out there and just win this fight by decision; I want to show the world who Miguel Torres is again,” the Chicagoan explained. “I’m on a personal quest to be the best fighter I can be, and be the best fighter in the world. I’m not going to quit until I reach my goals. Every goal that I’ve ever set for myself I’ve accomplished; I don’t know what it’s like not to accomplish goals. So for me, I’m going to get to the top of the mountain; it’s just a matter of time.”

Torres Splits Time Between TriStar MMA and Blackzilian Camp

Interested parties can see Torres attempt to reclaim his mojo when the preliminary pairings start at approximately 5:45 PM EST. Other streaming bouts include Matt Brown vs. Seth Baczynski and Gleison Tibau vs. Rafael dos Anjos. UFC 139 is headlined by Dan Henderson taking on Mauricio Rua for top contendership in the light heavyweight division and also features Wanderlei Silva taking on fellow striker Cung Le.
