Following his lost at UFC 145 to Michael MacDonald, former WEC champion Miguel Torres was released by the UFC and he has now signed with Titan Fighting Championship.
Torres made the announcement on his website last night and will be making his debut with Titan FC on November 2nd in Hammond, Indiana.
“I am writing this letter to inform you that as a result of my last loss, I was cut from the UFC,” Torres wrote on his website. “My next fight will be in Hammond, Indiana for Titan Fighting Championship on November the 2nd. I am excited to continue fighting, to regain my focus and to get back to what made me a champion. A special thank you to my manager, Glenn Robinson, my trainer, Firas Zahabi, my training partners, and all the staff at the UFC. I have dedicated my whole life to mixed martial arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. From teaching, to training, and fighting from the lowest to the highest levels, my passion in life is to be the best that I can be. Until November 2nd.”
Torres (40-5) went 2-2 in the UFC and was briefly cut by the organization last year after a tweet he wrote. The UFC brought him back at the end of the year and his first fight was against MacDonald in April. He was defeated in the first round by knockout and it was his first lost by knockout in nearly three years.
Titan FC has confirmed that Torres has been signed by the company and a opponent for the former WEC champion has not been announced.
