UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Valerie Loureda wasn’t just happy following her victorious return at Bellator 243 – she was elated.
After finishing opponent Tara Graff in buzzer-beater fashion at the end of Round 2, Loureda (3-0 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) let out a tribal scream directed at her downed opponent. After cooling her emotions and shaking hands with her opponent, the post-fight party began.
Loureda danced, and danced, and danced some more. She offered up her Instagram and TikTok usernames into the camera.
After the official decision, the dancing resumed and went on for quite a while. At one point, her sister even jumped in and the two danced together.
Check out Loureda’s post fight celebration below:
