This is big news for ZUFFA. They've been trying to find that great hispanic cross-over star for a while now. I think Cain Velasquez is probably going to see a lot of push on the latin programming. But I truely think that ZUFFA would be wise to work out a deal for WEC in the same vain.
Miquel Torres is the closest thing MMA has to the great mexican boxing stars. And I have no doubt in my mind that given the right promotion he'd be THE major star who puts MMA on the South American map. I don't think it would take long at all for him to become the adopted son of Mexico (think GSP without the residency). After that, it's only a matter of time before a true Mexican fighter emerges.
Big news indeed.
