Camp: American Top Team
Strengths: Physically strong and technically sound; jack of all trades
A martial artist from a very young age, Tecia Torres has used her lifelong fighting experiences to turn into a very successful professional fighter. Not only is she undefeated as a pro, but she was 7-0 as an amateur against notables such as Amber Stautzenberger, Sarah McLeod and Ashley Greenway.
Torres has an impressive resume in just four pro fights. She has wins over castmates Felice Herrig and Rose Namajunas already, which could be a psychological advantage going into this series. She also has a win over UFC signee Paige VanZant, showing that Torres is another front-runner to win the show.
On the feet, she is technically sound and quick. She does not have the most power in the world, but she accumulates damage throughout the fight and never lets her opponent breathe.
On the ground, she is most comfortable controlling from the top and throwing ground-and-pound. She is not the most prolific submission artist, so don't be shocked if she isn't finishing the fight with a choke or joint lock.
The one problem with Torres is she doesn't finish fights. You can dominate people all you want, but if you let a fighter stick around, there is always the opportunity to get finished by even making one mistake.
All in all, though, Torres is a fighter to watch out for here.
