I thought they would have fed him to Faber before they cut him. A fight between the two WEC greats / ex-champs was one the fans were calling for and Faber needs a named opponent. I guess if he wins a few, they will bring him back at a discount.

I thought this would be the perfect time for a Faber-Torres fight, at least in the sense that they are both coming off of losses. I think we've all been wanting that fight since Urijah went to 135. Plus we all know a win over Torres would put The California Kid right back in line for a title shot

Too bad for "Angel" though. He never had a boring fight, especially in his WEC glory days. He seemed to actually be sincere in wanting to make right for the rape van comment too. He almost lost me as a fan there, but Torres seems like a good dude. Hopefully he makes it back to the big show.

and so why did they wait like 4 months to cut him?



They cut him back in May and Miguel wanted it kept under wraps.

This blows, i'm a big Torres fan so i'm sad to see him get released. I'm sure with a couple solid wins he'll be back though.

Maybe Edgar moving down had something to do with it

However I can't think of a reason why those two things would be related


Edgar moved to 145, Torres fights at 135 so they aren't related at all

If you ever get a chance to talk to Torres, he is a great person to talk to. Funny and loves his fans. He walked with me and some of my buddies from our hotel to the Bell Centre at UFC 113 and it was awesome. I will always be a fan of his.

Not that I don't believe you, but where did you learn this?

Got the chance to meet Torres at a grappling competition. Seemed like a pretty cool guy.

I love him as a fighter. I hope he makes it back.
