June 14, 2019-New York, NY- Earlier this evening Master Valerie Loureda proved to the Mixed Martial Arts world that she is a legitimate force to be reckoned with in her 2nd professional bout in six months, at Bellator 222. Tonight she outlasted and outfought her opponent, Larkyn Dasch, for a decisive and unanimous 3 round decision on the biggest stage in professional sports, Madison Square Garden.
In the 3 rounds, while Loureda was not able to knock out her opponent, she did not appear to tire and delivered a series of well executed Taekwondo strikes and kicks. Dasch appeared frustrated throughout as she attempted to land some decisive blows on Loureda but was unable to make contact.
In what has become her signature move Master Loureda entered and exited the ring in her Taekwondo Dobek and 4th Dan Black Belt.
Look out for Valerie’s next MMA fight expected in the next 4-6 months.
