Titan FC 42’s Jose “Shorty” Torres: ‘I have nothing but to gain from this’

MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Titan FC 42 flyweight Jose “Shorty” Torres in advance of his interim title bout against Pedro Nobre this Friday (December 2, 2016) at Watsco Center Field House in Coral Gables, Florida.

Torres (3-0) talks about his incredible amateur record and his championship matchup against a seasoned veteran in Nobre (18-2):

“It doesn’t look good on paper for me. But overall, stylistically, I think it’s a great fight. He’s a gamer, he likes to go forward. He’ll pretty much fight you in whatever game you want to play. For me, I’m a stand-up fighter, I want to just stand and bang with the guy. My pro debut was when he fought (former flyweight champion) Tim Elliott, and watching them, I would love to fight either one of them. Actually, right now, I’m training with Tim Elliott. But overall, (Elliott’s) given me pointers, other people who have fought Pedro Nobre have given me pointers as well. It’s a win-win. If I win, I beat a guy who was 18-2 and the biggest veteran that’s not in the UFC. And if I lose, the guy’s 18-2, I’m only 3-0, I’m 24 years old. I have nothing but to gain from this.”
