  1. That looked like a total work with the way Colby Fletcher fell and fron exactly what she fell from. A phantom hip kick, that she blocked, then she lands on her butt, throws her head back as if she is out, and Loureda gives ground and pound. So exactly how does Loureda gain from that type of phantom fall from Fletcher? Exactly what was Fletcher out from in order not to defend when she first hit the ground? Not one punch or kick landed to her head, jaw, ear, or temple before Loureda even attempted any ground and pound. That was disappointing and highly suspect.

      1. Well, the replays clearly showed none of her punches in that combination thrown landed and the kick landed on the side of Fletcher which she partially blocked. The eye in the sky don’t lie. And Fletcher fell butt first on the ground and threw her head back as if she dazed and offered no defense for Valerie Loureda’s ground and pound. So yes that set up to that finish was highly suspect.

  2. Love “Master” Val – a charming young beauty! They did feed her a mediocre opponent. We don’t know yet how far she can go in MMA, but I think she will have a bright future in something. Looks, charm and a great work ethic are formidable assets.
