Miguel Torres faces Pablo Alfonso at World Series of Fighting 6

Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

Miguel Torres returns to action at World Series of Fighting 6 at BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Fla., on Oct. 26, 2013.

Miguel Torres is set to make his return to action when he faces Pablo Alfonso at World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 6 later this month (Oct. 26, 2013) at BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida.

Torres had posted on his social media pages that he would be fighting on the "Sunshine State" card, but didn't name his opponent. Naturally, everyone hoped that he would be fighting Bantamweight standout Tyson Nam, who is one of the top 135-pound fighters outside of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Instead, Torres has drawn Alfonso, a former Featherweight riding two straight knockouts in the Miami-based Championship Fighting Alliance. Before those wins, Alfonso had dropped three fights in a row. Taking one look at Alfonso's record, Torres is his most dangerous opponent.

For Torres this bout will be one of redemption.

The past few years haven't been kind to the former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Bantamweight champion. He was released from UFC for posting the infamous "rape" tweet before making amends with Dana White. But, then he was dropped after being knocked out by Michael McDonald in the first round of UFC 145.

The times didn't get easier after he left UFC, either. Torres was on the wrong end of a split decision in his WSOF debut against Marlon Moraes. That was his last fight. Torres found himself in legal trouble when he was arrested in August in Indiana for possession of marijuana and is due in court later this month.

The Torres/Alfonso bout is set to air on the WSOF 6 prelims.
