Valerie Loureda has shared an injury update following her first career loss at Bellator 259, this while providing her haters with a booty shake.
Loureda (3-1 MMA) had entered Friday’s bout with Hannah Guy (3-1 MMA) looking to build off her impressive knockout victory over Tara Graff from Bellator 243.
The 22-year-old would get off to a fast start in the fight, dropping Guy with an early combination. However, the tide would quickly turn after Hannah was able to take the fight to the floor. Guy nearly finished the fight with an armbar and then again with a mounted triangle, but Valerie Loureda showed her toughness and heart by surviving until the final horn.
After fifteen-minutes of thrilling back and forth action Hannah Guy was awarded a unanimous decision victory from the judges in attendance.
Shortly following the setback, Valerie Loureda would take to social media with the following message.
“You can’t teach heart. I’m 22 and you are watching my career develop in front of your eyes. To those who said I would get taken down and submitted in the first round, I proved you wrong. To my fans, I adore you. I love what I do, I was born to fight, and I will be champion.” – Loureda wrote on Twitter.
Now a few days removed from her first career loss, Valerie Loureda has provided an injury update along with a booty shake for her haters.
“Hey guys. I love you guys. I love my fans man. Y’all are awesome. Fighting is so much fun. I feel like a real f*cking fighter now. Try being in that submission with your arm basically broken for like three minutes and not tapping out. You know I feel like a real fighter now. I have fought on the ground, you know?”
