According to former WEC champion Miguel Torres has he been released by the UFC and will make his Titan Fighting Championship debut this fall. He announced that he will compete on the promotion's Nov. 2 show, which takes place in Hammond, Ind.
Torres did not release the name of any possible opponents.
Since losing the WEC belt, Torres has gone 3-3, and he was also previously released by the promotion for an ill-conceived Twitter remark. In his last fight, top-prospect Michael McDonald stopped Torres in the first round with punches.
Torres submitted Chase Beebe for the WEC bantamweight title in only his second fight with the promotion. He went on to defend the championship with victories over Yoshiro Maeda, Manny Tapia and Takeya Mizugaki.
In 2009, Brian Bowles stopped Torres in the first round to take the title. Since then, the former champion has picked up victories over Charlie Valencia, Antonio Banuelos and Nick Pace.
The Kansas-based promotion will take their show on the road for the first time since 2006. Titan FC has hosted 21-straight shows in their home state. On their last card, former UFC welterweight Anthony Johnson defeated fellow UFC veteran Dave Branch in a 195-pound catchweight bout.
