Who gets the legal first right to extradite if 2 countries want the same person? First come, first serve, or can one present a stronger reason than the 2nd, and the UK decide which one would get him. For the record, I do not think the USA has tried to get him back to the USA.

Seconly, I have not herd a word that the USA has sought extradition of him, but if we were, it would be a real complicated legal set of loopholes, and could involve military laws. It is not a simple legal matter. Treaty about torture is not relevant whatsoever to Assange. Right now Sweden wants him to answer for to their rape laws, and he is fighting that right now. If the USA is trying to extradite him at the same time, what would the UK laws do in that case? Again, first come, first serve, or the severity of each extradition the prioriety.
Not speaking of Assange, if this was anyone else, Do you know what treaty may restrict extradition to either country. Case in point was Roman Polanski could not be extredited from France, but he stepped into a country where he could. Extredition from the UK could be an issue that began back in the colonial days beteen the USA and UK, I do not know for sure.

Did he not flee from Sweden, or promise to to return to cooperate with investigations? You may have a treaty saying one thing, but he also was permitted to leave with conditions I'm sure.
