WEC 40: Torres vs. Mizugaki was held by World Extreme Cagefighting on April 5, 2009 at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. The event aired live on the Versus Network.
Bantamweight champion Miguel Torres was to defend his title against no. 1 contender Brian Bowles, but due to a back injury sustained by Bowles, the WEC replaced him in the main event with newly signed Bantamweight Takeya Mizugaki. Also featured on the card was a match up of former Featherweight title contender Jeff Curran and Joseph Benavidez.
