He’s small, but he’s quick. Jose Torres is a versatile midfielder who’s able to play in the center or outside. His quick feet and sophisticated understanding of the game help him against bigger opponents who, try as they might, have a hard time pressuring him off the ball. At age 24, Torres already has two World Cups under his belt. He started playing professionally at 16, so his understanding of both fitness—and the game—are beyond his years. His aged sense of the field comes to the forefront with his crisp passing and killer through ball.
In this special-edition of The Fit 5, two mixed martial artists, Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner give us an inside look into living life as a pro fighter.
