Miguel Torres needs Montreal to step up their taco game

Miguel Torres is a braver man than me.  Any exercise I do is driven by a promise of delicious food to follow.  If there wasn’t an amazing taqueria near my gym, I’d probably find another gym or perhaps even another sport so long as I’m training near a kitchen full of carne asada.  I’ve actually been told that Montreal has a decent Mexican food scene, but some French-Canadian girl told me that and she was wrong. The reality of the situation is a lot like Miguel Torres discusses in his fightblog on MMAFighting.com

“I love Montreal. It’s an awesome place. The only thing that gets me down from time to time is the cold. That’s one thing I could do without while staying here. Still, I’ve traveled to a lot of countries during my 14-year mixed martial arts career, and I can safely say Montreal boasts some of the best women and the best food. The only thing it seems to lack is Mexican food – which is a great benefit to my diet, truth be told – and a bit more heat. If they could sort those two things out, it would be as close to a perfect city as you can get.”

“The reason for ending my camp in Montreal is simple really – it’s far easier to make weight out here. I don’t have the comfort of home foods in Montreal. It’s tough to find tacos out here. The good thing about Florida, on the other hand, is that there is a heavy focus on wrestling, which used to be one of my main weaknesses a couple of years ago. Van Arsdale has me working on wrestling every day in Florida, and that kind of repetition and attention to detail has been a Godsend for me.”

We’re about three weeks out from the fight, and that’s a longer span of being taco-free than any man should ever have to endure, but we’re confident Miguel will sacrifice anything it takes to get his position atop the bantamweight division back. Torres faces the always-dangerous Michael McDonald (14-1) at UFC 145 in Atlanta.  Luckily for him, there is no shortage of comfort food down South following his weigh in. [source]
