Former WEC champion Miguel Torres has decided to call it quits after his 16-year MMA career.

Torres announced his decision on Facebook on Wednesday night. Torres won the WEC bantamweight title at WEC 32, submitting Chase Beebe in the first round. He went on to defend the title three times before losing the belt to Brian Bowles at WEC 42 on Aug. 9, 2009.

That was a sad retirement statement. I hope does well for himself. He fell off a long time ago and his chin is no more, unfortunately. I will always remember the wars he had in the WEC.

I met him over 5 years ago at a ufc expo and was able to see him fight live in the ufc

Always a fan of his

Yeah, I think it's time. Hopefully he can make a decent living teaching. Bummer he was one of my favorites.
