    Kid looks like a good prospect, but 6-0 is not very many pro fights. Maybe needs a couple more wins.

    Torres turned down Scoggins and two fights on DWTNS.

    A double champ in Titan should be plenty imo.They already tried call him up when he was 5-0 but he was recovering from an MCL.

    It is the type of fighter you sign up to make sure Bellator doesn't offer a 135lb contract (although he seems to prefer 125lbs).

    Plus Tim needs a fight and the fight has a quick back story to it.

    Yep back in the summer when he was recovering from a broken hand and torn MCL in his 5th fight during the spring.

    Fair enough. And I'm all for developing prospects in the UfC. If he's ready, he's ready.

    Although he's undefeated in 6 fights, he's still very green.

    UFC's 135 division is a shark tank, but their 125 division is a kiddie-pool with a big fucking shark with the belt.

    Torres needs to choose a division and stick to it, get a few more wins and then he'll be ready for the big stage of the UFC Octagon.

    Sometimes it's better for young fighters to stay in the lower leagues for a while longer.

    Add in his amateur fights and he's 23-0.In his pro fights he's fought and beat four good fighters including the 18-2 (at the time) UFC vet Pedro Nobre finishing him in a minute,the same guy Tim Elliot went the 25 minute distance with before coming back to the UFC and this kids already got two good wins since that fight including one over Farkhad Sharipov who's no joke.He's not a normal 6-0.Don't know about him fighting Tim in his first UFC fight but if he's willing.
