Tecia Torres and Heather Jo Clark show how to celebrate a birthday

torres-clark-celebrate-birthday

Everyone celebrates things differently. Normal people may give a hug or a kiss to show their acknowledgment of an event. Not fighters, however. Strawweight prospect, Cheyanne Vlismas, just celebrated her 23rd birthday. Her teammates, Heather Jo Clark and Tecia Torres, gave her the birthday treatment in their own traditional way.

It looks as if Clark likes to throw a machine gun combination to someone’s abdomen to let them know that they are special. As for Torres, she prefers body kicks for every year that you’re born.

Vlismas earned herself 46 shots to the midsection and 2 for good luck. The Tiny Tornado’s good luck kick looked like it had a little extra on it too.

While fighters do these things all the time, I can safely say that if it was me taking those shots, I’d be doubled over and shitting myself.

Raquel Pennington visits MLS team Orlando City and faces off with goalie Joe Bendik

UFC contender Raquel Pennington will face Amanda Nunes at UFC 224 for the Bantamweight title but before that, she was in Orlando facing Joe Bendik in a shootout. Joe is the goalie for the MLS team Orlando City and he was one of the players who met Raquel in advance of the UFC’s Orlando event this weekend.

Goalie coach Tim Mulqueen asked Raquel to apply a rear naked choke to him, and she happily obliged. It appeared everyone had a great time.

Orlando City will kick off their MLS season on March 3rd in a game against DC United. Last year Orlando City finished a disappointing 10th in the Eastern Conference. They are hoping to rebound this season.

Raquel is there to corner Tecia Torres in her fight with Jessica Andrade. The fight will take place Saturday night at UFC on FOX 28. The card for the event can be seen here.  That fight serves as the co-main event for the event. In the feature bout, Jeremy Stephens will meet Josh Emmett in a Featherweight clash.

Raquel enjoys playing soccer in her spare time to help keep in shape. I won’t tell you how her shootout with Joe Bendik goes, as you can see for yourself in the video below.
