Another major WEC star will soon be getting his first taste of UFC action according to a new report.

Former bantamweight champion Miguel Torres is now set to face off against Antonio Banuelos at UFC 126 on February 5th.

They will join an ever-growing group of big-name UFC fighters already scheduled for the event such as Anderson Silva, Vitor Belfort, Jon Jones, Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin to name but a few.

Though not confirmed yet it’s likely that Torres Vs Banuelos will fill a main card slot on the card.  Earlier in the day it appeared as if Carlos Condit Vs Chris Lytle may have been set to take that spot, but it’s since been established that the two welterweight fighter’s will in fact be fighting at an event later in the month.

Torres is expected to officially reveal the match-up tonight on ESPN’s MMA Live show.
