Well this is just friggin’ unbelievable. If a new report from Dave Meltzer at Wrestling Observer is accurate, Miguel Torres‘s recent UFC re-firing wasn’t due to his knockout loss to Michael McDonald earlier this year. Allegedly, it was due to the same lapse in judgement/humor/decency that got him fired the first time. As Meltzer writes:

The cutting of Miguel Torres was disciplinary in nature although it was not said what the cause was, only that he was cut. His record wasn’t bad, with a knockout loss to Michael McDonald who is going to be a top star (provided his hands don’t keep betraying him as he’s already broken them a couple of times) and a close loss to Demetrious Johnson, both top guys. He made the r*** joke on twitter and was fired, then brought back, and apparently he made some sort of a similar mistake.

Don't two negatives make a positive?

some folks never learn. i'm not against to the sense of humor. i'm against the stupidity of tweeting stupid shit after being previously fired for tweeting stupid shit.

Funny thing is it's media related but no one can find his "most recent lapse of judgement."

Can't believe Torres didn't think his account was being watched...

I don't think he should be fired in the first place, however very foolish to repeat that.

Yeah, I didn't get the feeling it was performance based since it happened some time after he last lost, but you never know what Dana is thinking.

Let us recall what he said after the first incident:

"What I said was very wrong," Torres told a group of reporters on Wednesday. "Words are hurtful. There are victims out there that have been through that. "


I suppose the "sensitivity training" he went to has worn off.
