“I was there [at WEC 35]â€¦ hell yeah. I wanted to see in person what [Brian] Bowles and Damacio [Page] are capable of inside the cage. And they didnâ€™t disappoint â€” I was impressed with both of them.
Bowles is a bit young and inexperienced. I saw a couple holes in his game. Damacio got the better of him a few times, which forced Bowles to shoot for the takedown. I think Damacio was doing pretty good actually until he got caught going in for that shot. Damacio made a mistake and just left himself wide open for that guillotine. Damacio should have kept that fight standing, but thatâ€™s what happens â€¦ he made a mistake and you cant do that at this level. He paid for it.
Iâ€™m itching real bad. I want to get down. I hate going to fights and sitting in the stands. I would have loved to have stepped in the cage on Sunday. I guess I just have to wait my turn.
I think Tapia is at the front of the line, but he just messed up his knee. So I donâ€™t know. Iâ€™ll fight Bowles â€” he looks good. And if he doesnâ€™t get the next shot Iâ€™m sure weâ€™ll cross paths one of these days if he keeps winning. I donâ€™t really care. Iâ€™ll fight anybody, anywhere. He doesnâ€™t even have to be 135 pounds.”
WEC 135-pound champion Miguel Torres, who sat cageside for WEC 35 earlier this month, talks to MMADHOUSE about several potential opponents for his next bout, which is likely to take place in December, and his desire to step back into the octagon before the end of the year.
