Miguel Torres, who was cut from the UFC roster after a recent loss to Michael McDonald, has announced that he will compete for Titan Fighting Championship.
Torres made the announcement on his official website Tuesday evening. He will debut on November 2.
“I am excited to continue fighting, to regain my focus and to get back to what made me a champion,” Torres wrote. “A special thank you to my manager, Glen Robinson, my trainer, Firas Zahabi, my training partners, and all the staff at the UFC. I have dedicated my whole life to mixed martial arts and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. From teaching, to training, and fighting from the lowest to the highest levels, my passion in life is to be the best that I can be.”
Torres rebounded from back-to-back defeats in the WEC to go 2-1 in three UFC appearances in 2011. But, the loss to McDonald still resulted in his release.
An opponent for Torres has yet to be announced, but the 31-year-old fighter will bring a 40-5 record to the cage. Of those 40 wins, 23 have come by way of submission and another nine via knockout.
