Bellator’s outlook has changed because she hopes to recover from her first professional defeat in the Bellator 271 event in Hollywood, Florida on Friday, when she played against Taylor Turner in the flyweight competition. Lorda (3-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) last played in May, and her unbeaten record lost to Hannah Guy in a unanimous decision.
“It’s very difficult, not because I lost, but because I lost to someone who is not as good as me,” Loureda told MMA Junkie at Bellator 268 Media Day on Wednesday. “I lost to myself. I mean, before that battle. People didn’t know this, but my grandfather, I lost him because of COVID. Before that battle, I had to watch him pass The plexiglass is dead, and my Bellator gloves are on his chest.
“It makes me sad because I can’t be with him, I just think it’s too wrong. A lot of my training is spent on funerals, cleaning the house with my mother, you know, arrangements and the like. I force Fight yourself, because fans like to put a lot of pressure on me, because I haven’t fought since that dance was eliminated. And I’m like this. I always want to grow, grow, grow.
But you know, this It’s not the best time for me to fight. My heart is not there. I want to rematch with that girl and Hannah Gay at some point. She is very good, but at some point I need to rematch with her because she didn’t have a match. Valerie Lowreda has played.”
In this unfortunate situation, it is difficult for Loreda to enter her fourth professional game. However, although she lost her undefeated record, but even though there are many things to deal with in her personal life, Lorida does not regret participating in this battle. After the failure, Lolda’s career has undergone major changes, and she believes that these changes will greatly benefit her career.
“To be honest, that defeat was the best thing for me because it forced me to change a lot of things,” Loreda explained. “I changed my head coach to Thiago Alves. I was lucky to have him in my corner. I had a great time in this camp. The coach of Katel (Kubis) Joanna (Jedrzejczyk) also worked with I am implicated.
“I have been practicing my wrestling, fighting, Jiu-Jitsu, 80% of this training camp. I really learned to fall in love with Jiu-Jitsu. My last defeat as an amateur player forced me to go to the top American team to see what I did.
Do everything. And after this defeat, I changed my whole camp. I am now a completely different fighter, and my thinking is in the right place. “I never said that I wanted to remain undefeated. I said I wanted to be one of the most interesting fighters in my history, and this is what I came here to do. I am young.
I lost, just like all other fighters in the profession. I have lost the same early in my career. What’s the big deal, do you know? I’m young. People had a great time in that battle. I didn’t give up. I showed my sincerity and I look forward to continuing my career at Bellator .”
