Former WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres has been released from the UFC.
Torres’ UFC career lasted for only four fights in total. He went 2-2 in the Octagon.
The former WEC champion was initially released in late 2011 after he made an ill-advised joke about rape on his personal Twitter account. A few weeks later, UFC president Dana White decided to give Torres another chance in. That chance happened at UFC 145, but unfortunately things did not go his way and now he moves on to a new promotion.
Beyond his release, Torres also announced that he has signed on with Titan Fighting Championships and will make his debut for his new promotion on Nov. 2 in Hammond, Ind.
“I am excited to continue fighting, to regain my focus, and to get back to what made me a champion,” Torres wrote.
No opponent has been named for his Titan Fighting debut.
