Miguel Torres can finally breathe a sigh of relief.
The former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) bantamweight champion, who was unable to find his footing under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) umbrella, was able to snap a three-fight losing streak last Saturday night (Feb. 15, 2014) in the headliner of the United Combat League "Havoc in Hammond" event in Hammond, Indiana.
Chicago's MMA was on the scene to capture all the 135-pound action.
Torres (41-7) was able to score a unanimous decision win over the game Giovanni Moljo (4-6), notching his first victory since being released by UFC in late 2012 following a loss to Michael McDonald. During that span, the "Chi-Town" native dropped back-to-back fights under the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) banner.
Onward and upward.
No other plans for his fighting future have been revealed at this time; however, Torres, 33, is expected to return to the cage later this year. In what capacity, remains to be seen.
