Those extra punches almost always look worse in the slow motion replay don't they?

Great fight though!

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.

same here, although regardless of what happened i still refuse to believe torres lost. nah uh. no way. now i just have to wait until torres comes back and ends bowles' ******* career in return for that bullshit.

(incase it wasn't evident i am a big torres fan )

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.

Orangester has a little shameless behaviour in the past
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.
