Ex-WEC Champ, UFC Veteran Miguel Torres Arrested in Indiana for Marijuana Possession
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
Moraes last November at WSOF 1.
