UFC NEWS – Miguel Torres Back In The UFC


According to UFC president Dana White, bantamweight fighter, Miguel Torres has been allowed back into the UFC following a dismissal from the promotion earlier this month.

White announced the news following today’s UFC 141 pre-fight press conference.

Torres, the former WEC bantamweight champion, received his walking papers from the promotion following a controversial posting on twitter that made fun of rape.

The twitter post prompted Dana White to announce his dismissal for the remarks and make an example out of the former champion so that others would not follow in his footsteps.

Today, that has all changed. After donating large sums of money to rape centers and visiting the centers to get a better understanding of how serious the crime is a remorseful Torres has gotten his job back.
