On second thought, Miguel Torres (Pictured) will now make his post-UFC debut with World Series of Fighting. The upstart promotion announced their latest acquisition Sunday night via Twitter. The former WEC bantamweight champion initially announced he would be competing for Titan Fighting Championship, but MMAFighting is reporting Torres has decided to ink a three-fight deal with WSOF instead. As a consolation for bowing out of Titan FC’s November 2nd show, Torres will be allowed to perform once for Titan sometime in the future. Last month, Torres was released from the UFC for the second time in less than a year. He was briefly cut from the UFC this past December after issuing a controversial tweet about rape. The 31-year-old was granted a reprieve just 19 days later because he took the initiative to contact every rape crisis center in his home city of Chicago, Illinois after his release. Torres also made monetary donations at each facility and took rape sensitivity courses. He was knocked out by up-and-comer Michael McDonald in his return to the Octagon. Torres owns an impressive 40–5 professional mixed martial arts record. At one point during his career, he had rattled off 17 consecutive victories en route to capturing the WEC bantamweight title.
