Bud Light sponsors Miguel Torres, Efrain Escudero

WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres and "The Ultimate Fighter 8" winner Efrain Escudero have signed sponsorship deals with Anheuser-Busch.

The two popular Hispanic fighters were named in an announcement Monday that Anheuser-Busch distributors in South Floria are donating $20,000 to fund Latino higher education scholarships through a retail promotion benefiting the Kiwanis of Little Havana Foundation.

Anheuser-Busch is the brewer of Budweiser and Bud Light and holds a 49.2 percent share of beer sales in America. In February 2008, Anheuser-Bush signed with Zuffa for Bud Light to become the official beer of the UFC and WEC.

Torres will defend his title against Takeya Mizugaki on April 5 in Chicago, Illinois. Escudero was scheduled to fight Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 18 on April 1, but has pulled out due to a rib injury.
