Manny Tapia(10-0-1) who still holds an undefeated record and is a two time King of the Cage World Champion will step back in to the cage since February for his long awaited shot at the current title holder Miguel Torres.
Tapia recently underwent surgery on his knee which had plagued his ability to compete for the bantamweight title against Torres. The surgery went as planned and he has been back in the gym working it out. This knee is the same knee that he injured prior to his last fight with Antonio Banuelos that didn't allow him to perform to his desire and resulted in an eerie split decision victory after it was mistakenly scored a draw due to incorrect adding of the scores by the judges.
Prior to his debut in the Zuffa owned World Extreme Cagefighting Manny "The Mangler" Tapia, known for his brutal ground and pound style, put together an impressive seven win streak that boosted his record to 8-0-1. The two time King of the Cage World Champion stepped up to a larger stage and has put on a 2-0 win streak with a little more emphasis on the stand and bang strategy and placing himself next in line for the WEC bantamweight (135lb) title.
At the top of the hill is Miguel Torres and he sits on the throne with the belt wrapped around his shoulder waiting for his next challenger. Come December 10 live from Las Vegas, Nevada both these men will meet in the cage and it will be one of the toughest fights for both Torres and Tapia.
"It's going to be fireworks, don't blink," said the cool Tapia about his matchup with Torres, "It's going to be fun," he concluded in an anxious yet calm tone. Tapia is touted as a four to one underdog going in to this fight with Torres, which would make any gambler think twice, and with Torres being on the cover of Novembers issue of Fight! magazine it's undeniable that more fans will be viewing this match than before but when all is said and done, when the dust settles and the fight is over, the doubters will become fans and the ones that once denied will think twice when they see another Manny Tapia fight.
For the whole interview stay tuned in for the next episode of the World of MMA show. Episode 14 will be available on Monday November 24th, 2008.
