Miguel Torres is more than a year into a journey to get a different perspective on the sport he loves.

That journey has led him to Montreal to train with one of the masterminds behind UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, Tristar trainer Firas Zahabi, who successfully broke him of a longstanding habit of brawling.

But a recent shakeup in the business foundation of Torres' career led him to Boca Raton, Fla., in advance of his fight with Nick Pace (6-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) on the preliminary card of UFC 139, which takes place Saturday at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The fight streams live on Facebook while a two-fight prelims special on Spike TV serves as a lead-in to the main-card pay-per-view broadcast.

That's the most misleading thread title of all time. That reporter should be kicked in the nuts for posting it like that. Torres was clearly kidding about getting a call from the ACLU.

I totally agree, completely unprofessional. And MMAjunkie is supposedly going to get it's own TV show and was just purchased by a big conglomerate? Ridiculous.
