Dunno about that, Mike. I think he learnt from the Bowles fight. He had a couple of set backs and he just fights a bit smarter now is all.
PersonallyI think Torres is fantastic and could definitely become champ again. I never got the watch a lot of WEC, but at one point I just watched like over a dozen of his fights and the guy is a PHENOMENAL fighter. Not just 'well rounded' but highly skilled almost everywhere. I learnt more about using my reach watching Torres fight than I did taking Muay Thai lessons. If there was a DVD boxset of his fights, i'd definitely get it.
Him vs Cruz, who I also like, would be very interesting. Not sure who wins that one. I see what he means about the style thing, but I do think that the notion of being able to cut Cruz' movement is a lot more appealing than actually being in the cage and actually doing it. Still, it would be a 5 star fight and he could cause his problems in other areas, no doubt.
