Report: Miguel Torres vs. Nick Pace In The Works for UFC 139


UFC bantamweight fighter Nick Pace took to twitter today and announced that he has agreed to face former WEC champion Miguel Torres in November.

The UFC has yet to officially announce the bout.

UFC 139 is set to take place on November 19th at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. With the original heavyweight title fight headliner between champ Cain Velasquez and Junior Santos moving from UFC 139 to UFC on FOX 1 the organization has decided to go with a non-title affair between Dan Henderson and “Shogun” Rua as the evenings featured attraction.

Pace was last seen at UFC 133 in a losing effort to fellow bantamweight Ivan Menjivar. The loss marked his second in his last three outings the first of which was to number one contender Demetrious Johnson at WEC 51.

Torres hasn’t seen the inside of a cage since his loss to Demetrious Johnson back at UFC 130. The former WEC champ has gone 2-3 in his last five outings.
