The fighter Tecia Torres is all ready for the ideal UFC chance. The MMA champion still has a lot of energy and spunk in her and packs a mean wallop.

She has the action and the motion. Tecia Torres is set to turn a good opportunity into a stepping stone that will lead her to success. Weighing in at 115 pounds, the invincible pugilist has plans to leave her hometown in Florida and fight in the UFC series. She is not content to remain in her comfort zone. 

According to her, sometime between spring and summer of this year, she will get her proverbial 15 minutes of fame. “Honestly I wish we had a little bit more details but all I know is that the date we leave is supposed to be in late spring or early summer,” Torres tells Cagewriter.

She is a tough lady who is preparing for the future matches she is to take part in and for now she is finishing off a few last minute duties. Unpaid utility bills and some extra chores need clearing up before Tecia goes out there and does her stuff. A very huge jackpot may be won if she concentrates all her energy on the fight. The title belt for the UFC is the main attraction that has Torres all shook up. 

The seasoned fighter is in her mid-20s and literally bursting with enthusiasm. She is raring to have a go at anyone foolish enough to step into the ring with her. Her opponents include some very high class warriors with nerves of steel. 

“When I go in there, my coaches will definitely be in my heart and mind. Everybody is a potential opponent on the show so I’ve got to be ready for fifteen different styles,” she says.

Currently, she is in the training phase of her regimen. The footwork and punching sequences are coming in handy. She is thankful to her teachers who all taught her the basic moves and inspired her to be a perseverant soul. 

“I’m upping my game in all aspects – striking, Jiu Jitsu, wrestling - so I can be ready for every single thing. All my coaches and teammates who have been on TUF or Fight Master before have given me advice. My coaches have looked at tape of a lot of the girls on the show. We haven’t gone into detail about game plans, we are just working on the basics. From what I hear the biggest issue is the mental aspect of being on the show. Weight cutting won’t be an issue for me. But not having access to the world and your people is a mental challenge.”

She has an eclectic approach in which wrestling, Jujitsu and some other styles and genres get combined in a deadly ensemble. But it is the mental and spiritual halves of the game that are the real issues she has to master. The physical aspect is the smallest area to ponder on in the fight. Torres has always been a great lover of the fighting arts. But she says she never thought that one day she would be earning cold hard cash via her public fights in the UFC.  

“Some people ask me that – if I think I’m a favorite. I don’t think of myself in that way at all,” she says. “I definitely know that people are calling me a favorite. But, in reality, I don’t have that much pro experience. Most of the other girls have a lot more experience than me. In my head, I’m the underdog. I don’t want to be in any other mindset. I’m going into this 0-0.”

“I loved fighting and wanted to do it but it wasn’t something I necessarily thought of as a career path to make money,” Torres reveals.

“I thought I could do this for awhile and go back to kickboxing if I needed to. I didn’t think of it as a career until Invicta signed me. But even then, I was coming to a point where I was going to probably have to stop fighting full-time. Invicta treats the girls well but it wasn’t enough to make a living off of. I’m 24 now and I told my mom that if, by 25, it doesn’t happen for me in MMA, I would realistically go back to work. I went to college and studied criminal justice. I always thought I was going to be a cop until I decided that I didn’t want to harm or kill anyone.”
