Tecia Torres saw her title hopes derailed due to a February loss to Jessica Andrade-- or so it seemed.
The UFC was quick to afford Torres the opportunity to rebound, as this Saturday she faces former dominant 115 pound champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk. Torres spoke on Joanna's skill set, which Torres doesn't think has diminished despite her recent downfalls.
"I think she's the same fighter, it just wasn't her day those two days. Maybe (she's) a bit more humble, she's been a little more quiet, hopefully out of respect," Torres said to reporters Wednesday ahead of their fight win Calgary
Despite the widely known fact that Torres trains alongside the current Strawweight champion Rose Namajunas, Torres told Fightful.com's James Lynch that an injury prevented the two from getting in too much work ahead of this fight.
"(I trained with her) Enough, not as much as everybody thinks. She had a little injury. I did do a lot of training with (Pat Barry) and her jiu jitsu coach. I do go to Denver a lot. There's a lot of awesome girls there -- JJ Aldrich, Rose, Heather (Jo Clark). I flew in Andrea KGB Lee. They're friends and I needed some extra bodies," Torres revealed.
