Fans have known about Raquel Pennington and Tecia Torres as they have been posting about each other since 2016. But it remains a mystery if they are still married or divorced.
So, let’s take a stroll through their relationship details in this article.
Are Raquel Pennington And Tecia Torres Still Married?
Raquel Pennington and Tecia Torres are still happily engaged, if not married yet (Yahoo! Sports referred to Tecia as her wife). Their recent posts date to 12 May 2022. Tecia posted a picture of the two visiting Canal Street Nola in New Orleans.
Tecia went into detail about her experience meeting her fiance. The fighter also revealed that Raquel is her first and only female relationship to date. “We met back in 2012 and we just became friends over the years”. Torres said. “One night something clicked and I was just super attracted to her. She’s my only female relationship.”
“The first time I was going to kiss her, I was so nervous I was about to have a heart attack.” The fighter continued. “She was like, ‘are you okay?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m okay.'”
“Then I finally just kissed her and it went away. Ever since then, everything has been so comfortable that it has been great”.
Although it has been widely shared that Raquel and Tecia married, there is no evidence of their nuptials. The rumor of their marriage was circulated long, as early as 2016. However, online sources reveal that they dated only a year before getting engaged in May 2017.
However, they met each other in 2012 during Invicta Fighting Championship while fighting on the same card. They have only fought in the same event once which was a few moments before they started dating in 2016.
Tecia announced the engagement Via an IG post, “She asked, I said YES!!!! #Engaged —- Our love began unexpectedly. It started as a crush and grew into an amazing love. At this moment you made my dreams for us come true. Every day you show me a love so true and pure. I am blessed to wake up to you every morning and fall asleep in your arms at night. I can’t wait to become Mrs. Pennington. 💚💜 I love you with my everything!! Always! @raquel_pennington“.
In March 2022, Tecia interviewed with MMA News and shared the impact of Raquel on her career. In the video, Tecia shared that Raquel brought adventure into her life in 2016. She talked about hiking together. She claimed to have an adventurous life, a great best friend, and a teammate.
They have been to Canada, Uruguay, Mexico, Brazil, Puerto Rico, and Japan among other countries.
Raquel said Tecia found the idea of fighting on the same night too stressful but made an exception this time. She was so on board with the idea that she moved her scheduled fight back a week to join Raquel. “I’m just happy I’m fighting first because I feel like I’m the more nerve-wracked one, so I’ll be able to get mine over with and then I can worry about her,” Tecia said.
On 9 April 2022, Raquel dedicated “a special post” to Tecia.
“I am beyond proud of you. I know your heart hurts but your head better remains high. Your growth in this camp has been incredible to watch. You may not have gotten your hand raised but you showed the world she wouldn’t finish you with her Jits and wow was your defense beautiful,” Raquel wrote on the post. “This is just a hiccup in the road. You are destined for greatness! It was fun to share another night on the same card as you in this wild career of ours”.

In 2017, they had also purchased a house together which they showed off on their respective Instagram.
