Both fighters will be looking to put on a show for the fans, which is what they have come to expect from these two.
Coming into this bout, Herrig sports an overall record of 9-4. She is a crafty fighter, who currently trains with Team Curran.

Herrig is a very athletic fighter who is able to push the pace on her opponents, whether it’s on the feet or on the ground. She will be looking to do the same against Torres, and a win would certainly get her bigger fights in the future.
Torres comes into this bout with an overall record of 3-0. She is relatively new to MMA, and she takes a huge step up in competition by taking on Herrig. However, if she is able to get a win, it’s going to be a huge feather in her cap. Her entire professional career has been under the Invicta banner, and she holds a notable win over Rose Namajunas, where she was able to grind out a unanimous decision.
In the win, she was able to land some great shots, and was able to control Rose in each round on the ground. She will be looking to prove she has what it takes to compete with a vet like Herrig, and it should be an exciting bout from the opening bell.
