Miguel Torres: Firmly Grounded in Success

by: Doug Drexler

Once upon a time, an 18 year old kid, weighing 120 pounds and fresh out of high school, asked his dad if he could fight in an “event” being held in a local bar. His dad thought he had gone crazy and refused to grant permission. The kid proceeded to show his dad a tape from the UFC showing Royce Gracie handling and defeating much larger opponents. Against his better judgment, his dad finally caved, opening the door for an unlikely career that has yet to reach its greatest potential.

Torres a heavy favorite at WEC 37 on Dec. 3

The WEC (World Extreme Cagefighting) returns to the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV on Wednesday December 3, 2008. 

The card is headlined by a WEC Bantamweight Championship Title Fight between undisputed king, Miguel Torres and Manny Tapia.  The fact that Torres is the Bantamweight king of the world is non-negotiable.  

The Chicago native has lost only one fight in his nearly nine year professional career and that loss was five years ago and it came by decision.  It took 18 fights before anyone could take Torres past the second round. In Torres’ thirty-four wins, he has only been to a decision five times; he has 20 submission wins and 7 wins by (T)KO.
