Former WEC bantamweight king Miguel Torres (Pictured) will make his return to the Octagon against Nick Pace at UFC 139. The HP Pavilion in San Jose, California will host the November 19th show.
Torres owns an impressive 38-4 resume, but has dropped three out of his last five scraps. The owner of one of MMA’s sickest mullets is just 1-1 since entering the big leagues following the WEC’s collapse.
Torres was last seen getting trounced by Demetrious Johnson at UFC 130 in May.
Pace, who announced the 135-pound affair on his Twitter account Friday afternoon, holds a 6-2 professional record. He is looking to bounce back from a unanimous decision loss to Ivan Menjivar at UFC 133.
A light heavyweight bout between Dan Henderson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will headline the pay-per-view broadcast.
Here is UFC 139’s updated roster:
Gleison Tibau vs. Rafael Dos Anjos
Zhang Tie Quan vs. Darren Elkins
Chris Weidman vs. Tom Lawlor
Nick Pace vs. Miguel Torres
Stephan Bonnar vs. Kyle Kingsbury
