Jose Torres has been pushing for his shot in the UFC.
And now, the two-division Titan FC champion will get it.
Titan FC co-owner Jeff Aronson confirmed recently that Torres has signed with the UFC as a replacement for Hector Sandoval. He’ll meet Jarred Brooks at UFC Fight Night 131: Rivera vs. Moraes next month.
Torres won all seven of his pro fights inside the Titan FC cage, including titles in the flyweight and bantamweight divisions.
So funny story few people know, I had absolutely no desire to sign @joseshortytorres to @titanfighting. @lexmcmahon spent literally a week convincing me what a special talent Shorty was, he was a 0-0 amateur at the time and I had seen no film on him, lol obviously lex won that battle and the rest is #history 2 #worldtitles 7-0 record all pro fights inside the Titan cage. Shorty prove to the world just like you showed me, your a champ inside the cage and out! God Bless you and your family my friend today Shorty officially got signed to @ufc #fighter #andnext #proudofyou
All of my accomplishments are because of all of you. I’m nothing without my team and I can finally say I made it out of the neighborhood! #WeCan #WeWill #Together #WeAre #TeamShorty Are you a part of the team? 📷 by @SonderMrktng pic.twitter.com/kvtwabisMv
