Torres: Faber fight will happen at some point

Miguel Torres and Urijah Faber put on very impressive performances at the last WEC event. That leads to the inevitable question of if the two champions will eventually face each other.

I know me and Faber are going to fight in the future,” said Torres, “It’s going to have to happen. The people would love to see it. I would love to do it. I know that he would too.”

Torres was also quick to say the fight is not going to happen just yet. He wants the fight to become as big as it possibly could first.

It’s just a matter of the motivation of the paycheck. The WEC has the two best fighters at 135 and 145. They’re not going to want to put a superfight together for a while. They’re going to let me dominate my weight class and let (Faber) do his thing,” Torres said.

Holding off on the dream match for a little while is both a good and bad idea. If both fighters are successful, the fight just gets that much bigger. However, as we’ve seen all too much (see: Mirko Cro Cop vs. Gabriel Gonzaga) , if either fighter loses, the match-up could quickly fall apart.
