WEC titlist Miguel Torres is coming off of two electric victories to retain his bantamweight championship. Now, Torres is preparing himself for the next potential challenger. While he doesn’t know exactly who he’ll be facing yet, he does know who the top fighters being considered are.
There are a couple of guys being looked at – Damacio Page of Greg Jackson’s team, the guy who just beat Chase Beebe – Will Ribiero, Manny Tapia - who I was supposed to fight before he hurt his knee, and there’s one other guy but his name is escaping me right now,” said Torres.
Torres would also like to have the match-up before the end of the year.
They wanted me to fight again in September,” said Torres, “But I am opening a new gym, just got a new house, and I am teaching some seminars so I told them December would be better for me. I’m sure December will be when I fight again.”
Based on Torres’ 15 fight winning streak that includes two victories this year over Yoshiro Maeda and Beebe, I believe Torres has a chance to quickly move up the pound-for-pound rankings with yet another victory over a top challenger. Torres has a great all-around game, and he may very well be one of the best fighters in the sport.
