Bellator 216 results, video highlights: Valerie Loureda impressive, pounds out Colby Fletcher for TKO in debut

UNCASVILLE, Conn. - Taekwondo standout Valerie Loureda didn't disappoint in her highly anticipated pro MMA debut Saturday.
Loureda , against a game opponent in Colby Fletcher , picked up a first-round TKO after landing a body kick that put Fletcher on the canvas. Then, after what must have seemed like an eternity to Fletcher, Loureda got the stoppage at the 2:55 mark of the opening frame following a barrage of punches and hammerfists.
“This is the moment I've been dreaming of since I was a little girl - my whole life,” Loureda told John McCarthy in the cage after the fight while continually fighting back tears.
