When Filipina mixed martial artist Jomary Torres made her debut under the ONE Championship banner last August, all the focus was on her opponent Rika Ishige.
When it was all said and done however, 'The Zamboanganian Fighter' was the center of attention after she shocked the world and stopped Ishige via submission.
Friday evening at ONE Championship: Hero's Dream in Yangon, Myanmar, Torres once again found herself being proclaimed the winner as she outpointed Indonesian Nita Dea to improve to 2-0 with the Singaporean-based promotion and 3-0 in her MMA career.
Torres was the lone Pinoy victorious in a card that saw Burn Soriano, Jeremy Miado, and Eugene Toquero fall to their respective opponents.
With a ton of momentum currently behind her, the 21-year old is currently riding high and excited to see what the future holds.
“My cup now overflows with blessing. Everything is still surreal to me. I guess this is what happens when you dedicate yourself to your craft." Torres shared. "I am excited about how the future will unfold as I continue my career in ONE Championship. For sure, I will be back in the gym immediately."
Now that she's got her 'rookie jitters' out of the way, so to speak, Torres believes that she's ready to make her way up ONE Championship's atomweight division.
"I am ready to climb the ladder and face the biggest names that the organization has to offer.”
Expect Torres to take a step up in competition once she returns to the cage.
