Marlon Moraes Named as Miguel Torres’ Opponent for Nov. 3 World Series of Fighting Debut
now has an opponent for his
World Series of Fighting
debut, as promotion officials
announced Friday that the former World Extreme Cagefighting
bantamweight titlist will lock horns with Marlon
on Nov. 3 at
The bout is expected to serve as the evening's co-main event and
takes place at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
The show will be headlined by a heavyweight confrontation between
UFC kingpin Andrei
Arlovski and ex-
IFL and Strikeforce
A 45-fight veteran, Torres, 31, recently received his UFC release
on the heels of a first-round knockout defeat to rising talent
McDonald at UFC 145. Torres began his career 37-1, capturing
the WEC bantamweight title in 2008 before relinquishing the strap
in his fourth title defense. That 2009 setback against Brian
Bowles signaled the beginning of a 3-4 stretch for the Hoosier,
who posted a 2-2 record during his time with the UFC.
Moraes, 24, recently completed a two-fight stint with the
Florida-based Xtreme Fighting Championships, outpointing Bellator
and WEC vet Chris
Manuel before knocking out Jarod Card four months later in his
most recent in-cage appearance. The Floridian owns six of his eight
career victories by either knockout or submission and has gone the
distance just twice during his five years as a pro.
