For Miguel Torres, Rematch More Important Than Title Shot

0

From The Las Vegas Sun:

“I've used the same training partners for 11 or 12 years, and I haven't brought any of them back for this fight. What ended up happening was — I wasn't getting cocky, they got cocky. They would say, 'Oh, you're going to kill this guy. He's only got seven fights. The guys I had coaching me were there just to give me water and talk my face off. They weren't giving me anything I could use. Looking back, I can see there were a lot of things off. But I was in a bubble at the time and couldn't see it. I was trying to go out there and put on a show, impress the crowd and make them look at the 135-pound division. This is a chance for me to come back and show I can be a better fighter. I don't think your wins define your career, I think you're defined by how you come back from a loss. I want Brian to lose (at WEC 47). He'll want to come back strong and then I'll have the best Brian Bowles there is. If he loses that fight against Dominick and he loses the belt, I wouldn't want a fight with Cruz. I would want Brian Bowles. A rematch with Brian is more important to me than a title shot.”
