And new, Champ, Champ
Jose “Shorty” Torres, made Titan FC history last night, by becoming the promotions first two division champion. Defeating Farkhad Sharpiov in a 5 round battle, by unanimous decision.
The newly crowned double Champ stated his claim for a shot at the UFC during his post fight interview pleading, “UFC, what are you waiting for?”. At this point, what else could the UFC be waiting for? The UFC Flyweight Division is in dyer need for someone else to step into the division and oppose Demetrious Johnson. And Titan FC has built a star in Jose Shorty Torres.
In an interview this week with Canvas Conversations Shorty said, “5-0 in barley over a year, two belts, something thats never been done before in Titan FC. Something thats never been done before that fast in any promotion, if the UFC doesn’t sign me that’s like disrespect to me.”
Could this strong performance against Farkhad Sharipov be enough to get the nod from the UFC?
