MEXICO CITY – Manuel Torres vows to put on a show in front of his home fans.

Mexico’s Torres (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) meets Chris Duncan (11-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in a lightweight bout which opens up Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 237 (ESPN+) main card at Mexico City Arena.

Torres will look to continue riding the momentum from his viral elbow knockout of Nikolas Motta this past June.

“I’m really proud of myself, because of the hard work, I’m here fighting for the UFC,” Torres told MMA Junkie and other reporters through an interpreter at Wednesday’s media day. “Again, it’s in Mexico with my people, so of course I’m excited, and I’m going to make a spectacular fight.”
