Miguel Torres is back in the UFC less than a month after the former WEC bantamweight champion was released for making a joke about rape on Twitter.
UFC President Dana White announced at today’s UFC 141 press conference that Torres had rejoined the promotion after he “handled his business like a man,” including volunteering and donating to local rape crisis centers.
Torres (39-4) topped Nick Pace at UFC 139 in November for his second UFC win in three fights following a narrow loss to Demetrious Johnson in May and successful debut over Antonio Banuelos in February.
The UFC has not yet scheduled Torres’ next fight.
