Bec Rawlings missed weight for her fight with Tecia Torres, she weighed in at 117.5 pounds, 1.5 pounds over the strawweight limit,
so 20% of her purse will go to Tecia Torres.

Bec says: Earlier this year I was finally diagnosed with Secondary Hypothyroidism after struggling with my weight & energy for
so long, & to add to that my hormones, cortisol & everything that fires this beast of a body has taken a hit from these nasty weight cuts to 115..
today I pushed my body to it’s absolute limits to try hit 116 & my body failed me.. I know people don’t exactly know what cutting weight entales
& are quick to judge & talk sh*t but I know I did everything in my power to make weight today. I’ve been calling for 125 for this reason,
women’s bodies are not designed to cut extreme amounts of weight & I am not the only UFC fighter with these issues, we need more divisions.
I’m still fighting, Tecia & her team ATT were very understanding & knew I couldn’t cut anymore & just want a good fight tomorrow night which
we will give. Can’t wait to fight & put on a show for the Houston Fans & everyone tuning in to see me fight
