MMA Fighter Shorty Torres Cut from UFC. Flyweight Division in Serious Jeopardy!
Mixed-martial artist Jose “Shorty” Torres has been cut from the UFC. He revealed the news in a 51-second video clip that he posted to his Twitter account.
Im the 1st to be let go. I didnt get to finish my UFC contract with 2 fights left because they are cutting most of my division n not giving some of us a chance to bump up n prove ourselves like myself. So now it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. Good luck small guys!
An 8-0 fighter in the flyweight division, Shorty claims he was the first to be let go because he has been vocal about the UFC getting rid of his weight class.
Shorty’s most recent professional fight was a loss to Alex Perez at UFC 227 in August earlier this year.
As this is breaking news, more details will be added as they become available.
