The boos emanating from the crowd is what gave it away.
World class coach Greg Jackson left his mark on this bout, with Torres taking a unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) by using his length to pick apart his diminutive opponent.
His strategy of keeping distance and landing a stiff jab while countering Banuelos was solid but it certainly wasn't a crowd pleaser.
Not exactly a great way to start the former WEC champion's UFC career.
That's not to say Banuelos didn't do his best to make it a fight. He jumped in and did what he could with his T-Rex level reach, at least relative to his towering opponent.
For his part, Torres didn't look like the 135-pound killer he used to be but a successful debut with the world's largest fight promotion will have to do -- for now.
Banuelos may have pleased the bosses with a late flurry that got the crowd to their feet but it was simply too little too late. He did what he could to bring the fight to his mullet-headed counterpart, so expect to see him back in the cage before long.
Whose impressed by Miguel Torres performance?
