Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has made something of a hobby out of calling out MMA fighters.  Late last year UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva was his target, but with nothing coming from it he has now set his sights on the WEC’s former bantamweight champion Miguel Torres.

The tale of the tape between these two shows that Ochocinco is by far the bigger man at 6ft 1″ and 190lbs, while Torres is just 5ft 9″ and fights at 135lbs.

What the stats don’t show however is that Torres has a razor-sharp tongue and a keen mind, and in a war of words Ochocinco may well have just bitten off more than he can chew.

See for yourself as the two got into a bit of verbal jousting on twitter last night.

Ochocinco: @MiguelTorresMMA would you be upset if i beat your ass and you are a professional fighter #justasking cause i will

Torres: @OGOchoCinco, listen son, this aint dancing wit the stars. Whenever you want to get your ankles broke, hit me up. Talk is cheap, whenever u want I will make you kiss the baby. You think your a Bengal, come earn ur stripes.

Ochocinco: @MiguelTorresMMA you want me to fly to you and beat you up? that will cost you a double ass whooping!!!!

Torres: @OGochocinco have you ever kissed your own ass, cause I can make that happen. This shit aint tae bo. Child please.

Ochocinco: @MiguelTorresMMA i might be dancing with the stars but you gonna see stars you keep talking this crap!!!!

Torres: – I’ll show you how to do the stanky leg son @ogochocinco

Ochocinco: @MiguelTorresMMA well this mexican’t lose to you

Torres: @ogochocinco won’t be kissing babies, he’ll be eating knuckles. You’ll be eating my fist as well as you catch a football.

Torres: @OGochoCinco nite baby, I already put u to sleep and we aint even fought yet. Round 1, 10-9 @MiguelTorresMMA

None of this is to be taken too seriously of course but Torres clearly won the opening round.  Stay tuned to both Ochocinco and Torres twitter pages to find out if they’ll get back up off their stools for round two.
