With her dance ticket currently unfilled, UFC strawweight Tecia Torres went to Twitter to try to book her next fight. Torres (9-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) earlier this week called out Michelle Waterson (14-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) on the social media platform saying she wanted to fight her.
“Michelle what’s up? Let’s fight and put on a good show! @karatehottiemma Waiting for you”,” Torres wrote on her Twitter account.

Waterson has not yet responded. But Torres replied to a trolling fan who said she wasn’t on Waterson’s level by saying, “I beg to differ” with a laughing emoji.
Torres started her career 4-0, all for Invicta FC, before coming to the UFC via Season 20 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” Although she didn’t reach the season’s final, she fout at the TUF 20 Finale and took a decision from Angela Magana. After that, she beat Angela Hill and Jocely Jones-Lybarger before dropping a decision to Rose Namajunas at UFC on FOX 19, which was the first setback of her career.
“The Tiny Tornado” bounced back with a win over Bec Rawlings earlier this year in Houston, which gave her eight decisions in eight career wins. But at the TUF 25 Finale in July, Torres finally got her first finish as a pro when she submitted Juliana Lima with a rear-naked choke to win a $50,000 performance bonus.
Waterson is coming off a second-round submission loss to Namajunas in the UFC on FOX 24 co-main event in April. That setback was her first loss in the UFC after opening with a pair of submission wins over Magana and Paige VanZant.
“The Karate Hottie” is a former Invicta FC atomweight champion who went 3-1 in that promotion with the lone loss being in a title defense against Herica Tiburcio. After that, she slid over to the UFC when the strawweight division was formed.
