Torres on Ishige: ‘I can easily take her punches’

MACAU—Filipino MMA fighter Jomary Torres looked like a nervous wreck in her first press conference, but it was a different story come fight night.

In the biggest fight of her young MMA career, Torres unleashed a monster hidden within her 5-foot-1 frame.

Torres (2-0) fought for the first time in ONE Championship Saturday and the Zamboanga native put on a show the beautiful Rika Ishige had no chance of shining in.

And Torres, after stuttering in her first media exposure, exuded the confidence of a fighter, who just made her dominant arrival.

“Rika’s strikes weren’t that strong and I can easily take her punches,” said Torres in Filipino. “Though, I was surprised when I hit her with my hook and she was still standing.”

Torres found her golden moment early in the second round when she caught Ishige’s kick and launched a booming right hand that put “Tiny Doll” on the mat.
