Bec Rawlings will be making her fifth appearance inside the octagon this weekend at UFC Fight Night 104, where she faces Tecia Torres.
Rawlings was a part of the UFC Ultimate Fighter with Torres and Rawlings doesn’t believe that her opponent has changed much as a fighter.
“She still has the same game plan and style,” Rawlings said to MMA Junkie. “She’s volume and punches in bunches, still can’t finish a fight to save her life, (and) still hits like a little p—y. She’s a good fighter; I’m not taking that away from her. But I feel like she hasn’t evolved.”
Rawlings is a part of a growing movement of women’s fighters in the UFC, but she still feels that a lot of referee think the women, unlike their male counterparts, are somehow weaker.
“Refs still kind of feel like we’re made of glass because we have vaginas and boobs, which is kind of frustrating,” Rawlings said. “In this sport, we’re treated as the most equal out of all the professional sports. We get paid the same, we get the same opportunities, yet we’re still looked at differently inside the cage by referees and judges.”
UFC Fight Night 104 takes place on Saturday, February 4 from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas with Dennis Bermudez and Chan Sung Jung headlining.
