It ain’t easy to perform sometimes when all eyes are on you, but some thrive on it.
Jose “Shorty” Torres, the Titan FC flyweight and bantamweight champion, did just that Friday night at Titan FC 48 in Coral Gables, as he advanced to 7-0 and kept his flyweight title, knocking out Alberto Orellano (6-3) at 3:58 of the first round, crushing with a sick left hook to the body/right hand combination. Torres is a black belt in Judo and has excellent boxing. I literally think that one day he could have a UFC flyweight title reign on par with Demetrious Johnson. As he is from Chicago, there will be a huge drive from fans to see him on the UFC 225 card in Chicago. He’s ready. He been ready.

Also worth checking out on this card is one of the sickest leg kicks you will ever see, with bantamweight Edir Terry destroying Irwin Rivera with a single leg kick. You could see the impact and the moment Rivera put weight on the leg, it snapped. It was a crazy scene that needs to be checked out. And then former Cuban Olympic Wrestler, the 4’11 flyweight prospect Gustavo Balart lost his undefeated record, falling to Juan Puerta (14-6). Balart’s wrestling was carrying the way for a couple of rounds, but Puerta caught the much short man with a flying knee for the kayo. The reaction of Balart’s corner and fans is so heartbreaking it was beyond captivating. Wow.
