Miguel Torres was submitted by Pablo Alfonso in his second WSOF fight, but believes that a strange decision by the referee prior to the fight was part of the reason why he came up short.

Oh Miguel

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I wrote a bit about it here: LINK

Its something that's bothered me about Torres for a long time. He's completely incapable of admitting he has faults and therefore does nothing to fix them. Blame always falls on someone or something else.

It has nothing to do with making an ill advised stop at 145 & being the way smaller man in there, nope it was the shorts. Sigh

Has anyone in MMA rose to the top so quick then crash to the bottom as miserably as Torres? Rampage is giving it a go.

Joey Warren....went from getting KTFO from winners to fighting amateurs in a so-called "tourney."

Remember when Dennis Hallman forgot to wear shorts to the cage? When he got knocked out of his man panties that night he didn't blame his loss on the mental strain of trying to figure out if his balls were hanging out. He took his loss like a man.

On the other hand how can you not love a guy who follows up a hilariously bad excuse with the statement I make no excuses for my performance and I take full responsibility for it.

I'd blame the mullet before the shorts.
