Miguel Torres vs. Takeya Mizugaki at WEC 40

Miguel Torres' new opponent for WEC 40 will be Cage Force bantamweight champion Takeya Mizugaki.

Brian Bowles suffered an injury during training and has pulled out of the bantamweight championship bout.

Torres (35-1) has won 16 in a row, which includes four WEC fights. He'll make his third title defense when he takes on Mizugaki.

Mizugaki (11-2-2) began his career in February 2005 with Shooto, going 6-2-2 for the next two-and-a-half years. Mizugaki debuted with GCM Cage Force -- Japan's only promotion with fights inside a cage -- in September 2007 and has won five straight.

WEC 40 happens April 5 at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois.
