Bellator fighter Valerie Loureda has a new career venture lined up in WWE months after her tryout appeared to exceed expectations.
Loureda was invited to Frisco, TX in April ahead of WrestleMania 38 for a tryout, and now it has been confirmed that she has officially signed with the wrestling promotion.
Loureda most recently bounced back from her first professional MMA loss to Hannah Guy with a split decision win over Taylor Turner at Bellator 271. She began her MMA career in Bellator with a debut knockout over Colby Fletcher at Bellator 216.
The 23-year-old Loureda had teased that she would love to eventually transition to WWE during a recent interview with MMA journalist Helen Yee, and it has now come to fruition. She doesn’t currently have a fight booked in Bellator despite teasing her MMA return later this year on social media.
Loureda earned a top-10 spot in the Bellator rankings with her most recent win over Turner. Despite her early success in MMA, she has now opted to sign with WWE.
