Former WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres will look to avoid the first three fight losing streak of his professional career when he faces Pablo Alfonso on the World Series of Fighting 6 fight card.
Torres (40-6) has lost his last two fights. The first defeat of his current losing streak occurred in April 2012, when Michael McDonald knocked Torres out in the first round of their UFC 145 contest. After that loss, the UFC released Torres. He subsequently signed with WSOF. Torres made his debut for WSOF in November 2012, dropping a split decision to Marlon Moraes.
The only other time Torres lost two fights in a row was under the WEC banner when he dropped consecutive contests to Brian Bowles and Joseph Benavidez. Torres' record since 2009 is 4-5. Before that nine fight run, Torres had a career record of 36-1.
Alfonso is 8-5 over his career. Alfonso has won his last two fights, with his most recent victory being a first round submission over Shah Bobonis at CFA 9 in January of this year.
Torres and Alfonso will meet at the featherweight limit of 145 pounds.
WSOF will take place on October 26 from the BankUnited Center on the campus of the University of Miami. In the main event Josh Burkman and Steve Carl will compete for the inaugural WSOF welterweight title belt.
