Torres vs Johnson could have big implications UFC Odds
- Depending on what happens when Urijah Faber and meet Dominick Cruz at UFC 132 on July 2, could be very important consequences for the winner of the battle of former bantamweight champion Miguel Torres WEC against the upstart Johnson Demetrius purpose week in the UFC 130. The UFC Odds
makers favor Miguel Angel Torres as a -140 favorite.
Torres is currently ranked 5th in the power ranking provided by ESPN, and Johnson is 9th. Should Cruz avenge his loss to Faber and retain the UFC 135-pound belt, he's already beaten the top of the heap in Scott Jorgensen (No. 6), Joseph Benavidez twice (No. 2) and Brian Bowles (No. 3), so Torres would be the next logical No. 1 contender should he get by Johnson. On the other hand, a win over the fan favorite Torres -- especially a convincing one -- might propel Johnson into that spot.
Miguel Torres took some heat for the fight against the "caution" against Antonio Banuelos lower in the UFC 126, but the truth is he was fighting smart, taking advantage of his reach. Against Johnson, who likes to push the pace is likely to see something like the old Miguel Torres, whose aggression made him the face of the WEC. Bet on UFC 130 Odds
