Every fighter goes through a period of decline as they age, but few fighters have had a fall as sharp and devastating as Miguel Torres.

Torres was once a 37-1 WEC bantamweight champion and one of the best pound-for-pound fighters ever (back when that distinction was less of a dubious marketing ploy). Then he hit a huge skid and wound up losing to a Wiki-less Pablo Alfonso in World Series of Fighting via submission in just the first round. The shame of this loss sent him to garbage regional shows with names straight out of EA Sports MMA — “Rebel FC” and “United Combat League.” Torres went 3-0 during this time over tomato cans.

His recent return to the “big time” was a fight against Desmond Green at Titan FC 31 in late 2014. Torres lost in under a minute. After this, Torres decided to try his hand at kickboxing. Last night, he had his pro kickboxing debut against Angel Huerta at Legacy Kickboxing 1 in Houston. The fight, like the last few rotations of the earth around the sun, held nothing but disaster for Torres:

Torres posted the typical MMA fighter “I’m not gonna make any excuses…but here are a bunch of excuses” on his Facebook page following the loss:

No excuses, I came to fight. My head is held high, congrats to my opponent. We were contracted to fight at 135 which is the weight I made but at weigh-ins I found out it was switched to 140 and on one told me. Having to cut an extra 5 pounds from 155 doesn’t seem like much but it is. Walk the walk or sit the fuck down. At rules meeting the kick to the knee was discussed thoroughly. Thanks ref, thank you for everyone who supported me for this fight.

Hopefully Torres can recover from yet another career setback.
