Tecia has been involved in mixed martial arts since she was only three years old, when she started Tae Kwon Do training. After years of hard work and devotion, she obtained a black belt when she was 15 years old.

When it comes to the MMA, Tecia has won three titles, MMA Solutions, US Freedom Fighter Championship and American Battle Championships, before being signed to the Invicta Fighting Championships.

After her second win, she fought Rose Namajunas at the Invicta FC 6: Coenen vs. Cyborg for her third straight victory, and Tecia continued to secure her fourth straight win, this time fighting Felice Herrig.

Her first and only loss so far happened in April 2016, when she fought against Rose Namajunas at the UFC on Fox: Teixeira vs. Evans. Nevertheless, she quickly bounced back and lined up two victories, first over Bec Rawlings, and then Juliana Lima, with the latter one being proclaimed Performance of the Night, which only increased Tecia’s net worth.

Her next fight is scheduled for the 2nd December 2017 at the UFC 218, when she will face Michelle Waterson.
