Miguel Torres will make his first appearance outside the UFC and WEC realm since 2007 when he steps into the cage for the World Series of Fighting on Nov. 3.

MMAFighting.com first reported that Torres signed a three-fight deal with the fledgling promotion on Sunday, and the organization confirmed the news Sunday via Twitter. Torres was released from his UFC contract last month and was originally scheduled to compete for the Kansas-based Titan Fighting Championship on Nov. 2, but those plans have apparently been revised.

The World Series of Fighting issued a release last week promising several major announcements at a press conference in Las Vegas on Sept. 6. The promotion will likely air its events on the NBC Sports Network, formerly known as Versus. More specifics about the November event are expected to be revealed during this week’s press conference.

A former WEC bantamweight champion, Torres has experienced mixed results since dropping his title to Brian Bowles in 2009, going 3-3 in his next six bouts. Most recently, the 31-year-old suffered a first-round knockout loss to rising prospect Michael McDonald at UFC 145 in April. The TriStar Gym representative fought three times in 2011, earning decision victories against Antonio Banuelos and Nick Pace while dropping a three-round verdict to Demetrious Johnson.
