Video: Former WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres wins his first fight since November 2011

Former WEC champ and UFC bantamweight Miguel Torres competed on Saturday night, see the full video of his performance on Bloody Elbow.

In the shadows of UFC Fight Night 36 was the return of Miguel Torres, who just 5 years ago was the WEC's reigning bantamweight champion, and a UFC veteran fighting Michael McDonald less than 2 years ago. After McDonald knocked him out to the point where he literally thought he was fighting Mark Hominick, Torres was released from the UFC and he later signed with World Series of Fighting. He dropped a decision to Marlon Moraes in his debut and then went up to featherweight, where he was knocked down and submitted by relative unknown Pablo Alfonso.

On Saturday night, Torres took on 4-5 Giovanni Moljo in the main event of United Combat League in his hometown of Hammond, Indiana. Torres, again competing at 145 lbs, didn't get the finish but he notched a unanimous decision for his first win since November 2011.

You can catch the full fight in the video above.
