Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Preview Video: Miguel Torres vs. Brian Bowles at WEC 42 (8/9)

(Props: MMA Mania)

The WEC’s next title bout will go down August 9th in Las Vegas, with undisputed bantamweight ruler Miguel Torres (37-1 confirmed record, 5-0 WEC) making his fourth belt defense against exciting contender Brian Bowles (7-0, 4-0 WEC). Despite the large difference in experience, the above promo video does its best to convince you that Bowles is a serious threat. "If I have to pick anybody out there, if I was Miguel Torres’s manager, who I would want to avoid, it would have been Brian Bowles," says WEC analyst Frank Mir, proving why he’s paid to fight and do color commentary, not manage careers. "To beat me you have to kill me," Torres says. "To beat me, you gotta take my heart out of my chest, and stab me with a knife." Luckily, Bowles has been training with MMA legend Mola Ram.

WEC 42 will also feature a possible #1 bantamweight contender match between Joseph Benavidez and Dominick Cruz, and the return of Leonard Garcia against Jameel Massouh.

Lesner made Mir look like Rocky Dennis! I wonder if Cher is going to adopt him now?

So when they introduce frank this time around, do you think they'll still refer to him as "the champ" or do you think the wounds are still a bit fresh?

And I wouldn't bet against Torres at 135. Maybe if he moves up, but not at bantamweight. Dude is sick.

@ mayhem

Haha, he was beat down by a cock sword.

@Diggler: As mentioned by past winners, it might take 6-8 weeks for the shirt to reach Ben (Assuming the shirt is in an adjacent room). However, the most probable scenario is the shirt never arriving.

Nothing tells me that Brian Bowles is going to be the guy to dethrone Torres. He is a good fighter though, and it should be quite the entertaining fight.

Frickin' HILARIOUS Mola Ram reference. That video is amazing.

Give yourself a t-shirt Ben.

I give Bowels 2 rounds, tops.

Torres is my hero, NO ONE beats Torres, NO ONE. He is as good as GSP, as good as Fedor, and even has a better record!

Torres FTMFW

He is pure, humble, a warrior. There is nothing on this earth that will ever stop Torres.

Bowles has that same air of confidence that Alves had before fighting GSP, and we know how that turned out.

...Wtf. Frank Mir takes everything way to deep. I cant imagine how he explains to his training partners how he and his wife do Weekend At Bernie's.

"To beat me, you gotta take my heart out of my chest, and stab me with a knife."

Torres has been ducking Kano. And Frank's forehead is oddly shaped in that video.
Fedor vs. Bas- July 21, 2009 at 6:47 am
After Torres runs through Bowles he should move up to fight Garcia, Uriah Faber, or Mike Brown. No one is close to him in the Bantamweights.
mayhem- July 21, 2009 at 6:36 am
I agree this is just hype for the fight. Torres will be going home with the belt around his waist. On another note, Frank's sporting a nice black eye!
Gee I wonder how he got that?? lol
Richard Tucker- July 21, 2009 at 6:21 am
I don't buy it. Torres by anything he wants.
