Jose Torres looking to make his mark in a new division at BRAVE CF 65

Jose "Shorty" Torres, a standout with BRAVE CF, has had a difficult few years. In 2019, he learned of his father's passing two days before his BRAVE CF Flyweight title battle. The revelation completely shocked him, and Torres was left out of the bout with Marcel Adur at BRAVE CF 29 as a result.

The American would thereafter experience three turbulent and frustrating years as Covid-19 further pushed back his title dreams. His chances of winning a BRAVE CF belt were then hampered almost two years later when he withdrew from the semi-final of the BRAVE CF Bantamweight Flyweight competition because he couldn't achieve 125 pounds.

In 2022, Shorty is back in contention, but this time he wants to repair his reputation in the BRAVE CF Bantamweight class. And in the co-main event of BRAVE CF 65, Shorty's new campaign gets underway against Jordan's MMA superstar Izzedine Al-Derbani.

Torres is still unbeaten in the Flyweight class, but considering that he has come so close to challenging for the title twice without being stopped in the 125-pound division, fans of BRAVE CF are left wondering "what if?"

Nevertheless, he has accepted his lot and will move up a level to demonstrate his mettle in an effort to win a new belt—the BRAVE CF Bantamweight title.

Shorty now jumps into a shark tank of bantamweights, including Brad Katona (the champion), Gamzat Magomedov, Alexander Keshtov, and more, with a new lease on life and a healthier mind and body.

These prominent Bantamweight fighters will only serve to inspire the highly competitive Shorty, who has never shied away from difficult competition and has thus far proven his pedigree in the cage. He is a former Titan FC two-division champion at both Flyweight and Bantamweight and came so close to winning the BRAVE CF Flyweight title.

In addition to putting the division on notice, a victory for Shorty will also serve as a symbol of his turning a new leaf after losing the guy who served as the only motivation for him to fight.
