Former WEC and Shooto bantamweight champion Miguel Torres has been booked for the World Series of Fighting’s sixth event.

Torres revealed the news via his Facebook page, but added that an opponent for him has not yet been confirmed.

When asked by a fan who he would like to fight, Torres responded, “Don’t know, don’t care. Tired of sitting down being a normal man. It’s not my style, a wolf that doesn’t hunt is just a dog.”

He also stated that he’s not looking to do any interviews or media appearances that he doesn’t have to prior to the fight.

Torres will most likely face Tyson Nam, as the match up had previously been scheduled before Torres was arrested on a marijuana possession charge. He is currently set to appear in court next month, and could face up to one year in prison, making his scheduled appearance at WSOF 6 a bit tentative to say the least.

The former champ has had a rocky couple of years. He’s gone just 3-4 since losing the WEC bantamweight title in 2009 to Brian Bowles, and is currently coming off of back to back losses. He debuted in WSOF last year after a 2-2 stint in the UFC, dropping a split decision to Marlon Moraes at WSOF 1.

Torres is currently 40-6 in his MMA career, and has been actively competing for over 13 years.

WSOF 6 will take place on October 26 at the Bank United Center in Coral Gables, Florida. It will air live on NBC Sports Network.
