20-year-old Florida native Valerie Loureda is setting her sights high as she announced herself as “the face of women’s MMA” ahead of her second Bellator bout this Friday.

Former taekwondo specialist Loureda made her MMA debut in Bellator back in February, recording a TKO victory over fellow American Colby Fletcher.

“I don’t see how it’s gonna take me long to win the Bellator belt, I am here to conquer, I am here to take over Bellator,” Loureda told mmafighting.com at a recent media day.

“And that belt will be mine soon, I am 20 years old, I am turning 21 next month. I have a long length, I have a lot of time in the sport, which a lot of women don’t have, and that’s the biggest advantage in my career,” she added.     


If you’re going to call yourself the ‘Face’ of Women’s MMA, you better win more than one fight. 

She definitely has a J-Lo esque look.
