Former World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight champion and UFC veteran Miguel Torres was arrested in his home state of Indiana this past weekend for alleged possession of marijuana.

Torres’ mugshot was recently posted on the Facebook page of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department as part of the Marshall County Jail bookings from Aug. 24 to Aug. 25. Torres’ exact time of arrest was not revealed in the report. However, it was indicated that the fighter posted a $1,500 bond.

Once known as the world’s best 135-pound fighter, Torres captured the WEC bantamweight belt in February 2008 and defended the strap successfully three times before relinquishing the title to Brian Bowles in 2009.

Torres joined the UFC in 2011 as part of the WEC’s integration into Zuffa’s flagship promotion and posted a 2-2 record before receiving his walking papers last year. The 32-year-old then signed with the upstart World Series of Fighting, falling in a split decision to prospect Marlon Moraes last November at WSOF 1.
