MMA Quick Quote: Miguel Torres witchcraft leads to Mark Buehrle perfect game for ChiSox

"I left a cup of lions blood and some cobra venom for him to throw a no-hitter. That's how I roll. I have that effect on people.... "[The ceremonial first pitch] went good. I'd call it a strike, but the guy didn't catch the ball, man. It made it to the plate. I did put a little bit of cut on it -- I didn't plan that, it just happened. I only wanted to make it to the plate, and I made it to the plate. Now it's time to go beat people up at the gym."

-- WEC Bantamweight Champion Miguel Torres talks to the Northwest Indiana Times about the voodoo effect he had on the mound when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch today for the Chicago White Sox. Pitcher Mark Buele went on to register just the second perfect game in team history and only the eighteenth in Major League Baseball (MLB) history, defeating the visiting Tampa Bay Devil Rays, 5-0. In addition to Torres' supernatural heroics, outfielder Dewayne Wise helped Buehrle's cause with a surreal fence-leaping grab to steal a Gabe Kapler homerun and preserve the perfect game. Outside the stadium, Torres will look to ruin the perfect run of number one 135-pound title challenger Brian Bowles (7-0) and defend his title once again in the WEC 42 main event on Aug. 9.
