Great fight though!

Do not analyze your opponent's cup size (before a fight) because it can be intimidating.

Wow! I never expected Torres to go out like that. Good job for Bowles though.

Bowles is in for a big stepup in competition here and while i think he'll be competitive i just can't see Miguel losing here. Interested in the Cruz/Benevidez matchup seeing as the winner is pretty much getting a shot at the winner of Bowles/Torres. Both guys are solid fighters so its bound to be an entertaining fight.

Not that excited about Mizugaki/Curran but they both need a win tbh. Mizugaki needs one to get back some momentum that he lost during his fight against Torres and Curran just needs to get a win to stop himself from going 0-4 in his last 4 fights (admitedly 2 of those fights were against Faber and Brown so there's no shame in losing to the 2 top featherweights atm)
Thats why he hasnt impressed me. So Neg rep me again. Seriously teach me. Almost all the guys he has fought until Chase Beebee to recent, excluding a couple, have had poor records. Yeah you can lose at anytime but shit man. His one loss does not impress me I should have said. Knowing you can lose at anytime and winning all those fights is impressing though. I thought Beebe was going to beat him Mizugaki, and Maeda as well. He proved me wrong. Brian Bowles I knew nothing of but he handled business.

I just don't think anyone, including the ref expected Torres to go out like that. Throughout all those shots I was thinking in my head that he would just scramble out lol.

great much but Torres got caught, he got too excited going for the finish and Bowles manages to capitalize, congrats to the new champ but i want to see the rematch.

Bowles really impressed me with this fight. People kept building up how Torres hasn't lost in 5 years and how he's the best P4P fighter from America (haha Mir), and he got finished in 1 round by getting KTFO. I'm hoping this isn't a fluke.
