    Yeah man, Torres is great to watch, he has great stand-up and uses his reach well, and he's not worried about getting taken down because his guard is one of the nastiest in MMA imo. I hope Torres can get a couple of impressive wins fairly quickly and get back in the UFC.

    Miguel Torres Looking for a Restart at World Series of Fighting

    Miguel Torres Looking for a Restart at World Series of Fighting

    Going back to November, it was a big blow, said Torres. I went through a lot to get back into the UFC, got back in and lost the fight. I didnt follow the game plan and went out there and got caught with a punch and I got (released) again.

    The biggest thing for me to get back on track is to get stable.

    Finding stability could come down to finding a longterm home, like the one Torres had in the UFC and WEC. Should Torres new home in the World Series of Fighting live up to expectations, he may just have the platform he needs to get back on track and find success again.

    Its an exciting feeling to start in a new league and kind of have a homecoming fighting on the NBC Sports Network (where the WEC was broadcasted on during the channels Versus branding) and fight on a card with guys like Andrei Arlovski, said Torres.

    While its a new home, dont expect Torres to go about doing things differently than before.

    Ive been doing this for the past 13 years, so for me its business as usual, he said. Im going to go out and fight the same way, whether its the UFC or my back yard.

    I always dedicate myself 100-percent to my craft and my opponent is going to see the best Miguel Torres that he can possibly see.

    Torres first fight for the WSoF on Nov. 3 in Las Vegas comes against Marlon Moraes, a fighter Torres has some familiarity with.

    Ive trained with him in Florida, so I know what to expect out of him, said Torres of Moraes. I know what hes good at, I know what Im good at, and the most important thing is to go out there and fight my fight.

    I know I have to keep my distance, and when I do come in, I have to come in hard. Ive got to close the distance, get him in the clinch and take him down to the ground. I know that middle-range is going to be his. But I know what Im good at, and I know what I can do to give him a hard time.

    Torres told MMAWeekly.com that, at this stage in his career, thinking about anything other than whats in front of him isnt important, staying in the moment is.

    Just win, said Torres of his goals. All Im worried about is winning my fights.

    I dont care who it is, whos in front of me, or what their name is. Im not worried about that. The only thing Im worried about is going out there and taking my opponents out.
