Miguel Torres' second release from the UFC immediately brought speculation that the fighter's tweets had again gotten him in trouble.

But Torres (40-5) today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that he's a little smarter than that.

"I thought that was kind of funny that (people would think) I would make the same joke," Torres said. "That's what people want to say, that's what people want to think, (but) I just know that I'm fighting for the World Series of Fighting."

He seemed to be dodging the question, I'm not sure I believe him.

I know Dave Meltzer reported this but Dave says a lot of nonsense and never provided a quote as to what the tweet said or anything. I have to believe that Torres wouldn't make the same mistake twice but its definitely possible. Weird to have been released so long after the fight though.

We already know that he made the same mistake twice. What's up in the air is whether that's what he got canned for or not.

Yeah...to be honest, the "no, don't, stop" joke is old and one has to split hairs to say it's not really the same joke as before. I wonder if we'll ever find out why he was let go.
