- Tecia Torres (4-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) recently spoke about being part of the Ultimate Fighter 20 and more. Here are the highlights…
On The Winner of TUF 20 Boeing The Best Strawweight In The World : "I think whoever wins this show will be No. 1 in the world," she said. "The top-10 girls are in the UFC now; they were in Invicta, and now they're in the UFC. So I believe whoever wins this show will be No. 1 in the world."
On Her Mindset Going Into TUF 20: "I'm going in for the kill," Torres said. "I want to go into every fight very aggressive and hungry for the win. I won't relax at any point in the fight. I know it's a two-round fight, and if it does have to go to three rounds, I'm more than capable and ready for that. But girls are vicious, and I know these girls are going to try to tear my head off, so I'm going to try and do that same."
On Team Pettis vs. Team Melendez: "I like Team Pettis," she said. "But I'd be more than happy to be on Team Melendez, as well. I have some of my coaches who actually want me to be on that team. But I still tell them I want Pettis. One (reason I want to be coached by Pettis) is because he's Puerto Rican and I'm Puerto Rican. But the other reason is I really like his striking style, and if I'm to add to my striking game, he'd be the one to do it. But if was on Melendez's team, I could definitely use new skills in wrestling and jiu-jitsu."
