Miguel Torres back in the UFC after being cut three weeks ago

by Chris Palmquist | source: twitter.com
 

Three weeks ago UFC bantamweight and former champion Miguel Torres was released after making an inappropriate comment on Twitter. The situation was made aware to Dana White during an on-camera interview who immediately responded that Torres was fired.

The news was a shock to the fans and media as Torres, a fan favorite and former champion, had been quoting a popular TV show and others in the UFC had made similar comments and not been released.

Today, UFC President Dana White told that media that Torres was back in the UFC, and had made positive steps showing remorse for his actions. The President's announcement was tweeted by Ariel Helwani:

Dana says Torres is back. Torres has donated money to local rape centers, visited them. Dana says Torres was very remorseful.

Worst post ever, probably /thread would be appropriate because nobody would want to be involved in such gay and tasteless joke, please edit this post to a single dot and never come back

Somebody should do a parody of Dana White's hiring and firing practices. A Ultimate fighter walks into Dana White's office.. Dana says to the Ultimate fighter "You're Fired!". Ten minutes later Dana walks into the bathroom and sees the fighter washing his hands and says to him "Oh by the way you're re-hired". Ultimate fighter looks into the mirror.....and says to himself "WTF?". /thread

I'd laugh if his Twitter got hacked and someone posted a rape joke. Ok. Maybe not laugh. But a chortle.

And this is why I wasn't screaming hypocrite or bloody murder at thenews of the release. So obvious he'd just get admonished then be back immediately, at most one fight in a feeder org, but I doubted that
