Miguel Torres: "I would like to bang with Bowles; I think I can knock him out"

Miguel Torres had an online chat with fans and answered a bunch of their questios.

Quote:
On his future plans...

"I think my next fight is going to be against Brian Bowles. I think he's the #1 contender right now."

"Jeff Curran is talking a lot of smack, but if Bowles wants it, it will be him.

"Curran is trying to get an easy title shot."

"Bowles is a great competitor that can strike and grapple very well. My Jiu Jitsu is better and I would like to bang with Bowles because I think I could knock him out."

On a fight with Kid...

"I have to fight him. He's considered one of the best and I have to fight the best. I know I'll have a lot of reach on him and I would use that and if he took me down, I would use my BJJ."

"They say he's one of the best GnPer's, but people are always trying to GnP me and it don't work."
He talks more about Bowles, Curran, Faber and a bunch of other stuff in the full transcript:

Kid vs Torres would be amazing.

I think Kid would probably lose to be honest. Torres would probably submit him or jab him to death.

I don't doubt Miguels ability to stand and bang with anybody.

Curran and Faber are both FW fighters, so I don't understand this thread too much. On the other hand, I think Bowles is the #1 contender right now at BW, should make for a decent match against Torres.

I am really glad to see him talking about a fight with Bowles b/c he has certainly earned it imo.

I dont like all the talk of "super-fights" between divisions like Torres/Faber as I think it is WAY to early for that stuff. Both divisions are just now getting exposure and they need to be built up. Long-term I think it would be a bad idea at this point.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

I love me some Torres and Faber. Those are two badasses, barring whoever they lose to. I'd pay to watch a 70 year old Torres fight a 70 year old Faber; repeatedly.
