And to think peeps thought Tapia was goin to beat Torres.
Wait, people actually thought Tapia would win? Seriously? Manny's the goods, but Miguel's the greats. He'll never be beaten at 135.

Bowles vs Torres should be next. Bowles has beaten Valencia, Galvao, Page and Ribeiro in the WEC. He finished all of them. Man, Torres vs Bowles should be fun stuff. Bowles is like a 135 Forrest Griffin.

great showing by Torres, also that rolling axe kick was the goods, notice how he pretty much drops his hands and gives him a weird look (maybe a taunt? or maybe im looking to much into it), The spin was pretty fast, im sure that had it connected it would have packed some power, also Torres landed on perfect position and i think he was pretty confident that he could win that fight from his guard, Torres also had a chance to connect with both legs. The reaction from Tapia is funny too

Also...sick KO, and pretty good showing of trying to recover from power shots from Tapia.


Torres..

Rep big time for a Gif from 1:11 to 1:05

that fight would forsure make sense.

He's a pretty big dude for bantamweight, I can't really blame you for making that mistake.

I remember reading somewhere that if Torres cleans out 135, he'll move up and take on the 145ers. Could you imagine Torres/Fabiano? That fight would be orgasmic.

I know, Bowles just looks bigger and taller than he really is.
