According to a Dec. 8 post from MMA Fighting, American Top Team product Tecia "The Tiny Tornado" Torres was shocked by how easy it was to defeat No. 5-ranked strawweight Felice Herrig.

Torres, 24, wasn't ranked in the top 10 in the division coming into the fight, but she walked away as a legit contender for the Invicta FC strawweight belt.

"What shocked me was total domination," Torres (4-0) said, when asked what surprised her about the Invicta FC 7 fight with Herrig. "Felice was my idol. I looked up to her when she was kickboxing, everything came together you know, it was an honor tonight, everything keeps getting better and better."

Invicta FC's strawweight champ Carla Esparza called out Torres following her win over Herrig, so it's clear that the Florida-based Muay Thai ace is on the radar for a title shot.

In other main card action, Lauren Murphy rebounded from a lackluster opening round to defeat Miriam Nakamoto.

The official stoppage came 23 seconds into the fourth frame, when Nakamoto's knee buckled under her. Since the fight ended with an injury, Murphy says she would be happy to grant Nakamoto a rematch.

"If she wants a rematch I'll give it to her, I don't think anyone wanted to see it that way," said Murphy (8-0) at the Invicta FC 7 post-fight presser. "I'm going to go home the champion and work even harder. I saw her nose was bloody and I tasted it when it got in my mouth. Nothing gets me more excited for a fight than two people beating the s--- out of each other."

In the Invicta FC 7 main event, Barb Honchak outlasted Leslie Smith to retain the Invicta FC flyweight title.

"It was a great fight," Honchak said of her first title defense. "I felt we had a great striking battle."

Also on the main card, Julia Budd defeated Charmaine Tweet.

"I'm looking to be the best," Budd said. "I want to be the best in my division. That's the fight I'm looking for."
