MMA veteran Jason Reinhardt is eyeing Miguel Torres and World Extreme Cagefighting’s 135- pound division.

“I’m undefeated at 135 and Miguel Torres is not,” Reinhardt said during a promotional interview for his upcoming Courage Fighting Championships event in Decatur, Illinois. “He’s the best fighter in the world they say, so I would love the chance to compete against him and fight him in the WEC.”

Reinhardt, 20-1 in MMA and coming off a submission loss to Joe Lauzon at UFC 78, says the decision to no longer fight at 155 comes from his family and those around him.

“I wanted to but my wife, my family and everyone is telling me ` go to 35,’ ” said Reinhardt.

“He’s an awesome fighter and I respect him greatly so let’s do it,” Reinhardt said. “I would love the opportunity and he should give it to me.”
