A new star was born in women’s MMA on Saturday night when Valerie Loureda secured an impressive debut win at Bellator 216, proving an instant hit with fight fans.

Loureda’s much-anticipated professional bow did not disappoint as the 20-year-old Florida native secured a first-round TKO win over Colby Fletcher in their flyweight bout at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. 

“This is the moment I’ve been dreaming of since I was a little girl, my whole life,” Loureda told John McCarthy, as her proud father Frank watched on tearfully.  

Loureda’s eye-catching debut is matched by the attention she has gained from her model looks, frequently shared with her followers on social media.

She can fight and looks pretty good doing it.
