Miguel Torres wasted little effort in dismissing the latest
challenger to his World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight championship. He
finished off Manny Tapia at the 3:04 mark of the second round on Wednesday
night at WEC 37.


Brian Bowles, also one of the top ranked bantamweights in
the world, dominated his fight as well, finishing Will Ribeiro by Guillotine
Choke in the opening moments of round three.


The respective wins by these two top
bantamweights is
likely to set up the next big 135-pound showdown in the
WEC. Torres and Bowles want to fight each other and, now, the fans are calling
for it.
