Former WEC Champ Miguel Torres jokes about rape on Twitter, gets cut from the UFCPosted on December 9, 2011, 08:06 AM by Anton Gurevich
Former WEC Bantamweight Champion (and one of the best Pound-for-Pound fighters during that time) Miguel Torres paid a price of getting cut from the Ultimate Fighting Championship, after making a somewhat evil rape joke in one of his tweets. Torres, who has nearly 50,000 followers, tweeted the following:
“If a rape van was called a surprise van more women wouldn’t mind going for rides in them. Everyone likes surprises.”
Dana White's reaction was quick. The UFC President told MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani "enough is enough", explaining that Miguel Torres crossed a clear line between his personal humor to what can be posted on a public domain.
Miguel Torres is 40-4 in his MMA career, holding a UFC record of 2-1. Alongside the former UFC Middleweight title challenger Nate "The Great" Marquardt, Torres is the most high-profile fighter cut by the UFC in 2011.
