A loss wasn’t the only thing Miguel Torres received on Saturday night at “WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz.” The former bantamweight champ has Tweeted a picture of the disgusting forehead gash he’s sporting after it met Joseph Benavidez’ elbow in the 2ndRound.


The owner of MMA’s sickest mullet promised fans that he would bounce back resoundingly from his title loss to Brian Bowles at WEC 42, however was thoroughly trounced by Benavidez and his relentless and violent attack.

The laceration was caused when Benavidez landed a razor-sharp elbow early in the 2ndRound causing blood to gush out of Torres’ dome. Despite the slickness of the blood, Benavidez was able to secure a tight guillotine choke and submitted the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt.

After rattling off 17 consecutive wins, Torres has now dropped his last two contests.

Here are Torres’ Sunday evening Tweets:

“20 stitches in my forehead. Couldn’t see and was breathing in blood, [expletive] happens. I will be back.”

“I will come out with my hand raised or I will go out on my shield. In victory or defeat my head will always be up.”
