The story of the weekend could be the debut of 20-year-old Valerie Loureda, a newcomer to Bellator MMA.
You might be asking why, and it’s because the Miami native is a decorated Taekwondo fighter. All of the her family is as well including her sisters, mom, and dad.
They’re all at Mohegan to support her on Saturday night.
Valerie is so happy to have her mom there after she just recently fought off cancer.
Loureda will be the first TV bout on Saturday night.
