UFC strawweight Tecia Torres recently decided to come forward about how she met her fiance and fellow UFC competitor Raquel Pennington.
“The Tiny Tornado” is currently gearing up for her next big octagon performance. This time around, Torres is set to face off against Jessica Andrade at UFC on FOX 28.
The two fighters will face off on Feb. 24 inside the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. Speaking on the UFC’s featured promotional video “Fight Night Orlando: Road to the Octagon” for the upcoming event, Torres went into detail about her experience meeting her fiance. The fighter also revealed that Pennington is her first and only female relationship to date.
“We met back in 2012 and we just became friends over the years.” Torres said. “One night something clicked and I was just super attracted to her. She’s my only female relationship.
“The first time I was going to kiss her, I was so nervous I was about to have a heart attack.” The fighter continued. “She was like, ‘are you okay?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m okay.'”
“Then I finally just kissed her and it went away. Ever since then, everything has been so comfortable that is has been great.”
