During the mixed martial arts hour on Wednesday’s episode of AFTERNOON PRESS BOX on Sports Radio 560 WNSR, hosts Darren McFarland, Brad Hopkins, Chris Pappas and Ed Clay talked with former WEC bantamweight champ and new UFC bantamweight Miguel Torres (36-3), who is coming off a unanimous decision win over Antonio Banuelos at UFC 126, in what was both fighters’ first UFC bout since the WEC-UFC merger late last year.
Aside from keeping the guys laughing, Torres talked about the adjustments he made to get things back on track after suffering a couple of losses. He also talked about working with trainer Firas Zahabi and why it was important for him to follow their gameplan during the fight with Banuelos.
In addition to the interview with Torres, the guys also recap the UFC 126 fight card including Anderson Silva‘s amazing front kick knockout of Vitor Belfort in the main event. They also preview Saturday’s upcoming Strikeforce card.
