Following the post-UFC 141 press conference, Dana White informed the reporters that bantamweight fighter Miguel Torres is forgiven and can return to fighting in the UFC.

Miguel, a Carlson Gracie black belt, made light of rape in a joke posted over Twitter and was summarily fired.

Dana White explained why he allowed the fighter back into the promotion: “ He handled himself like a man. He owned up to it, went to rape crisis centers and talked to them about what he did, donated money to them all. He wasn’t told to do any of that.”

Miguel Torres, a Jiu-Jitsu teacher in the North American state of Indiana, is a former WEC champion and has amassed an official record of 44 MMA fights, with 40 of them triumphs.
