Another UFC veteran is scheduled to compete at the Legacy Fighting Championship kickboxing card in January.
Miguel Torres, who was once considered the best bantamweight fighter on the planet, is set to make his kickboxing debut against fellow MMA fighter Angel Huerta at the debut of Legacy FC kickboxing on January 16, Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard told MMAFighting.com.
Torres, a former WEC bantamweight kingpin with a 43-7 record in MMA, was scheduled to compete for GLORY in June, but withdrew from the card with an injury. Torres is 3-0 in MMA in 2014, with one submission and a pair of decisions.
Huerta, who holds a 6-3 record in MMA, once challenged Matt Hobar for the Legacy FC bantamweight championship. He hasn’t won a fight since a 67-second knockout over Saul Elizondo in Nov. 16, 2012.
