New, comments

Miguel Torres wants to show Michael McDonald "What's up."

Now he'll get to show the rest of us as well, following the recent announcement that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has promoted their bantamweight brawl to the pay-per-view portion of its UFC 145 fight card, scheduled for April 21, 2012 at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.


"Fighting on Pay-Per-View is special to me," said Torres. "I would watch the big boxing cards with my father as a kid, and my father would well up with pride and emotion when guys like Julio Cesar Chavez fought. I'd never seen my father show so much emotion and I am proud to become an extension of that great Mexican fighting legacy in the UFC."

McDonald said: "I think Miguel Torres is definitely the most significant opponent I've ever faced on a business perspective. Now it's my chance to prove to myself that I can do what I think I can do on a huge Pay-Per-View event."
