Jonathan Torres, also known as "JT" Torres, is a Puerto Rican American Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner.[23] He is known for a number of competitive accomplishments earned both prior to and following his promotion to black belt.[24]

Though having won numerous victories in gi competition, Torres has been particularly successful in no-gi events, earning multiple international championships.[24]

In March 2013, Torres left Team Lloyd Irvin and joined Atos Jiu-Jitsu.[25]

On November 22, 2014, Torres fought Rory MacDonald in a grappling match in Metamoris V. Giving up 40 pounds, the fight ended in a draw.
