Op 8 december is UFC-vechter Miguel Torres ontslagen door Dana White. Zijn tijd bij de UFC was van korte duur aangezien Miguel pas sinds 28 oktober 2010 actief was voor de UFC. Miguel heeft zijn “rapetweet” inmiddels aangepast.

Miguel Torres heeft via zijn Twitter-account een ongepast opmerking gemaakt over verkrachting. Volgens velen is het raar dat Miguel Torres ontslagen werd na zijn opmerking aangezien Forrest Griffin en Rashad Evans een tijd geleden ook ongepaste opmerkingen maakte via hun Twitter-account.

Dana White:

SI.com: And what about Miguel Torres’ tweet from yesterday?
 
White: This morning I’m on [Michael] Landsburg’s show, up here in Canada, and he hits me with the quote of what he tweeted. Now there’s no explanation for that. There’s absolutely nothing I could say to make any sense of that. And the fact that he even thinks that’s funny or that’s a joke, it disturbs me. It bothers me. Again, you’re dealing with a guy that’s a smart guy, that owns his own business, that’s been one of the top fighters in the world forever. And I cut him today. He’s no longer with the UFC.
 
SI.com: Was that announced today?
 
White: It’s being announced right now to you. You’re the only one that knows. Miguel Torres has been cut from the UFC and his career with us now is over.
