Miguel Torres got some time off from his new day job as Ecko’s “Chief Executive Enforcer” to get back in the cage at WEC 51 in Colorado.

Miguel unveiled some new things on Thursday night. He is now fighting out of Montreal and Firas Zahabi’s Tri-Star gym, and he had a brand new stance. Some things were still like the old Miguel. “His mullet looks good,” Stephan Bonnar said. And like so many times in the past, Miguel Torres won. And he did it in convincing fashion.

After a feeling out process in the first, Miguel landed a nice combo that made Valencia cover up and retreat. Miguel worked him up against the cage. After a brief stoppage for an unintentional low blow to Valencia, Torres got back to work. Another combo dropped Valencia and Torres pounced, almost finishing Valencia with a barrage of ground and pound. Valencia escaped as the bell sounded.

A minute into round 2 Torres connected with a big right and quickly followed that with 2 head kicks — a right and a left — that sent Valencia to the ground.Valencia was able to get up but Torres quickly landed a knee that put him right back down. Torres worked some ground and pound methodically before taking Valencia’s back and securing a body triangle. From there he locked in a rear naked choke and Valencia tapped at 2:35.

Torres collected $10k and “Submission of the Night” honors. He also improved to 37-3.
