Up until signing with the UFC, Ronys Torres had just one loss on his 15-fight record, signaling a promising future in the promotion. However, since then the fighter’s career took a nosedive.
First came a knee injury requiring surgery just before his would-be UFC debut; then came another surgical procedure to fix a detached retina. With the losses to Melvin Guillard and Jacob Volkmann that followed, Ronys was dropped from the event.
His return to form was supposed to happen at the Amazon Show Combate event on the ninth of this month, but the fighter lost again, this time in his rematch with Adriano Martins, the only man to have beaten him before entering the UFC, then by knockout. The result was contested by his team, but Adriano’s unanimous decision win this time around stood.
