Torres open to overdue fight with Faber

by Brett Okamoto | source:

A fight between the champs then would have been a massive event, with the winner having a legitimate claim as perhaps the best in the world. Today, things are different.

“Now, there’s only bragging rights,” Torres told “He’s coming off a loss. I’m coming off a loss. He’s had four title shots since then. He lost twice to Mike Brown, to Jose Aldo and now to Dominick Cruz. I lost fights to one of his students [Joseph Benavidez] and Brian Bowles.

“All the momentum we both had, we kind of lost. That fight is still one fans want to see, but I think this fight a couple years ago would have been a lot bigger.”

It’s maybe not the fight it once would have been, but if it’s a step back toward that, Torres is in.

“It’d be a great fight for me because I never had the chance to fight him and we were on top for a long time,” he said. “What sucks is we both don’t really have as much to gain as we did two years ago, but it’s still a fight I’m looking forward to.”

Bad fight for Miguel. Gotta admire that fighting spirit, though.

Faber will wrestle fuck Miguel. It will be a terribly boring fight IMO. Unless Miguel starts to get up from takedowns I don't see anyway it's not boring. Faber will engage to get a takedown don't think he will bang with him. Miguel I felt won against mighty mouse. , but he got wrestle fucked.
