Top WEC bantamweight contender Manny Tapia (10-0-1) has been forced to pull out of his June 1 title fight with champ Miguel Torres (32-1) due to a knee injury.

The WEC made the announcement today.

According to the bulletin, Tapia suffered the injury during a recent training session.

I think you meant "Bowles" as in the replacement for the fight, right?

that sucks, I was really looking forward to this fight. I thought Torres was going to tap him out because his jiu-jitsu is just that nice.

this sucks, but i dont think Tapia deserved a shot at Torres. IMO Torres woulda taken him to school.
