Tecia Torres welcomes RFA Champ and UFC newcomer Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger at UFC 194

Tecia Torres has a new opponent for UFC 194 next month, as the organization announced on Friday that they’ve signed RFA Strawweight Champ Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger as a replacement opponent.

Torres was initially slated to face Michelle Waterson, who was forced out of the event this week due to a knee injury.

Lybarger, 30, made her MMA debut with Invicta FC in 2012, and has put together a 6-1 record to date. That run includes four straight in RFA, whose championship she captured just last month with a decision win over Zoila Frausto.

Torres is officially 6-0 in her MMA career, and will be seeking her third straight win after decision wins over Angela Magana and Angela Hill.

UFC 194 hits Las Vegas on Dec. 12, headlined by the Featherweight Championship fight between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor.
