Former WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres has moved to train with the “Blackzilians” in preparation for his UFC 139 bout with Nick Pace.
UFC 139 takes place November 19 from San Jose, California. Dan Henderson will meet Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in the main event. Torres-Pace is currently set for the preliminary card, which will likely pull two fights for the hour-long UFC Prelims special on Spike TV.
In shifting his training to Florida, Torres will now work with the likes of former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, Anthony Johnson and Matt Mitrione.
Torres (38-4) has gone 1-1 since the WEC folded into the UFC, defeating Antonio Banuelos before falling to Demetrious Johnson. He is 2-3 in his last five fights overall.
