Valerie Loureda signs a new fight deal with Bellator after her second-round KO win at Bellator 243. After ending her amateur career with a record of 2-1, she is now 3-0 with 2 finishes in her professional MMA career. She trains at American Top Team with fellow Miami native and BMF Champion, Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal.
She started martial arts at an early age as her parents owned a Tai-kwon-do gym in South Florida. This training has given her a unique base to build on for her fighting style. She has become one of Bellator’s most exciting and popular female fighters. She also trains with former UFC Strawweight Champion, Joanna ‘La Cucuy’ Jędrzejczyk, who believes she has championship potential in Bellator.
Valerie’s fighting style in addition to her amazing looks and vibrant personality has brought millions of eyes to Bellator. Not only is she gaining attention from many fans, but even other promotions like Invitca FC and the UFC are watching closely for the next potential women’s MMA star.
She clearly has superstar potential, and already boasts over 500k followers on Instagram following her viral post-fight celebration at Bellator 243. She has already gained major corporate sponsorships with only 3 professional MMA fights. These include Monster Energy and Vital Proteins. She is also managed by Malki & Abraham Kawa at First Round Management, the home for many elite UFC fighters among other professional athletes. Some of the most notable FRM clients are Jon Jones, Jorge Masvidal, Yoel Romero, Paige VanZant, and Demetrious Johnson.
