Raquel Pennington had the fight of her life against Miesha Tate yesterday and won a lopsided decision over #1 contender Miesha Tate at UFC 205. It is certain that Pennington celebrated with Tecia Torres afterwards.Torres is the love of Pennington’s life and they are possibly the cutest couple in MMA.
Torres and Pennington have trained together at American Top-Team in Florida and also have trained in Colorado Springs together. Their bond grows even stronger as they train together.
Pennington is 6-2 in the UFC and has only lost by split decision to two high-ranked fighters. Torres is 3-1 in the UFC and has only lost a decision to a top-ranked fighter. It is safe to say that Torres and Pennington find success while training together.
Last night a torch was passed to Pennington from Miesha Tate. Tate was once Pennington’s coach on The Ultimate Fighter and Tate realizes that it is not her time anymore and that it is Pennington’s time. She sealed the torch pass by a kiss on the forehead.
It was not easy for Tate to retire last night, but Tate has realized that her time is passed. It is Pennington’s time to shine and she will do so with Torres at her side.
