A fighter on her way up takes on one that might be on her way out with a loss as Tecia Torres squares off with Brianna Van Buren at strawweight during UFC on ESPN 11 this Saturday live in Las Vegas.
Torres comes in as the veteran underdog gatekeeper, and has lost her last four fights in the octagon. She’s 6-5 overall in the promotion, but has dropped her last four fights all by unanimous decision, and might be fighting for her contract here despite being ranked #11 in the strawweight presently. With only one stoppage in her 10-5 career record, the Ft. Lauderdale resident is a member of American Top Team and fires 4.04 strikes per minute.
Van Buren is 9-2 career, winning her UFC debut against Livinha Souza last July in a unanimous decision. The American Kickboxing Academy member has five stoppages in her career (three KO’s, two submissions), and was previously fighting in the Invicta promotion.
