Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Watch Miguel Torres Get Obliterated by Desmond Green [GIF]

(Damn. / GIF via Zombie Prophet)

Every MMA fighter’s career has a downward arc, but few were as fast and drastic as that of Miguel Torres. Last night was just another painful GIF in that chapter.

Torres took on former Bellator fighter (and season 10 featherweight tournament semifinalist) Desmond Green in the main event of last night’s Titan FC 31. It wasn’t pretty. Green out-hustled Torres and finished him with a brutal knee and follow-up punches in under a minute.

It was a sad thing to see for people who remember Torres in his prime back in the WEC days. Torres was once the WEC bantamweight champ. At his best, he was an incredible 37-1. Then he lost to Brian Bowles at WEC 42 and Joseph Benavidez at WEC 47. When the UFC absorbed the WEC, he went 2-2, with losses to Demetrious Johnson and Michael McDonald.

When the UFC sent him his walking papers, he went to the WSOF where he lost to Marlon Moraes and the unheralded can Pablo Alfonso. After this, Torres was relegated to fighting people like Wade Choate (Editor’s note: lol wut?) in the minor leagues. The fight against Des Green was the first time since 2012 Torres fought real competition, and it’s clear he can’t handle it anymore. What a shame.
