UFC Quick Quote: Miguel Torres is going to show Michael McDonald 'what's up'

"For me, I look at this as a second chance to be able to show everybody what I'm about. I haven't had a clear mind in a long time. The fact that I get to solely focus on training is going to make me a 100-percent different person. I already know, the way I'm training now, I feel different. It's unexplainable. People that watch me train have noticed a huge difference. They ask if I've been eating different or doing something different. The biggest thing is that my mind is clear. I have no worries. I'm going to give (McDonald) his introduction to the real world of MMA. I'm not going to test him at all. I'm going to show him what's up. Big difference: when you give a test, you can pass and fail a test. When you show somebody what's up, that's what you show them. I'm going to show him what's up."

No way to spin this one, Maniacs, as former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Bantamweight Champion Miguel Torres (via The MMA Hour) has a statement to make against Michael McDonald at the upcoming UFC 145 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on April 21, 2012, at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. That statement? "This is what's up." Then again, McDonald, who has 12 finishes in 14 wins, could have Torres yelling "Mayday" come fight night. It's old school vs. new in "The Peach State." Who takes it?
