Miguel Torres has decided to try his hand at kickboxing.

The former WEC bantamweight champion has signed a one-night contract with GLORY, according to his manager Glenn Robinson. Torres will make his promotional debut at GLORY 17 Los Angeles on June 21 at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

The 33-year-old will take part in a one-night, 145-pound four-man tournament. He'll meet Shane Oblonsky in one semi-final fight, while Gabriel Varga vs. Yodkhunpon Sitmonchai is the other semi-final. Both Torres and Oblonsky will be making their pro kickboxing debuts.

Torres, who is 41-7 as a pro MMA fighter, most recently defeated Giovanni Moljo via unanimous decision in February. Prior to that win, he had lost three fights in a row, including two since his release from the UFC in Aug. 2012.

Torres' debut will air on the GLORY 17 Spike TV undercard. The main card will mark the promotion's first pay-per-view telecast.
