Tecia Torres Says Retirement Is Near


Tecia Torres has been a top 10 ranked female strawweight since coming to the UFC a little over a year ago, she is facing Bec Rawlings this Saturday Night at UFC Fight Night 104. Despite a record of 7-1-0 as a professional MMA fighter, Torres believes she’s closer to the end of her MMA career than most realize.

“I have some thoughts in my mind (for opponents before retiring), but they're all over the place and always changing. We'll see what happens in the next few fights and just go from there, but I'd like to get a nice big win in Texas,” Torres said to Bloody Elbow.

Torres hasn’t fought in over ten months now, while saying that it has been a strained relationship with the UFC as of late.

“It's been a game of cat and mouse with me and the UFC, because I haven't been injured, I've been ready to fight. I could have fought a long time ago. I haven't fought in ten months. Maybe I didn't do enough in my last fight to get a fight in the last ten months, but I was pushing for it and then they gave me the Bec fight and I was like, ok,” says Torres.

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.
