UFC Woman Is Pregnant With Fighter Girlfriend

Raquel Pennington and Tecia Torres are two huge stars in the UFC and fans love them. They are married and announced last month that Torres is pregnant with the couple’s first baby due in June 2023.



“It’s pretty surreal,” Torres told MMA Junkie on the red carpet at last week’s World MMA Awards. “In June we’re gonna be mommies, something that we’ve wanted for a long time now. I think the time is right.”

Added Pennington: “Just the idea that we have a little one on the way, and I have a fight coming up, a big fight coming up, it’s just super motivating. It’s encouraging, it’s exciting … it’s a one-of-a-kind feeling.”

The arrival of their first baby means life changes are on the way for both women, although they’re more immediate for Torres.

“Last November I was shredded. I was still shredded this November, but now it’s getting a little less shredded,” Torres said with a laugh. “My abs are down to one.”

“I love it. I love the motivation,” Pennington said. “Not just because of our relationship, but I’ve known Tecia for years, and she’s honestly one of my favorite fighters. It’s just exciting to see her go through the journey outside of the octagon in real life. And then to come back and finish off a solid career, it’s exciting.”
