UFC strawweight Tecia Torres believes this Saturday’s scheduled fight against Jessica Andrade should have been the main event of UFC on FOX 28, instead of being the co-main event.
Torres (9-1-0) is being tipped for a title shot if she is able to get past Andrade this Saturday. The “Tiny Tornado” feels as though the importance of the fight makes it more deserving of the main event slot than Jeremy Stephens vs. Josh Emmett.
“I think that this fight should definitely be the main event but it really doesn’t matter,” Torres told MMA NYTT. “At the end of the day, I’m grateful for the fight and I just want to get in there and get another big victory so I can get one step closer to the title fight. “Looking at the card, I definitely think our fight should be in that spot but it’s OK.”
“I do believe that for sure,” Torres continued. “I believe that will be the fight to watch at the end of the night.”
UFC on FOX 28 takes place this Saturday February 24 from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, United States. The main card co-headlined by Torres vs. Andrade will be aired live on FOX from 9pm EST.
