Loureda first made her Bellator debut back in 2019, when she defeated Colby Fletcher via TKO in the first round. Since then, Loureda has not looked back and has been giving scintillating performances. In her second fight, she won against Larkyn Dasch at Bellator 222. She won the fight via unanimous decision. She took her Bellator record to 3-0 when she defeated Tara Gaff via TKO in the second round.

These types of performances from someone who is just 22 years old are outstanding, and now we will get to see her competing once again when she faces Hannah Guy on May 7.

A debutant to fight Loureda?

Hannah Guy is making her Bellator debut against Loureda, but that doesn’t mean that the fighter does not have professional MMA experience. Guy made her debut back in 2019 against Jenny Clausius and won the fight. She then faced Kayla Hracho and lost.

In her third fight, she went to win against Vanessa Marie Grimes and took her MMA record to 2-1. The Hurricane has learned Jiu-Jitsu and fights under coach Jacob Reeves.

Going into the fight Loureda seems to be the favorite, but as both the fighters are not that experienced you never know.

The Bellator 258 already looked very good with Juan Archuleta vs. Sergio Pettis being the major fight. A fight between Yoel Romero and Anthony Johnson is also on the cards.

Both Guy and Loureda would be eager to win this fight, Loureda would want to continue her unbeaten streak while Guy would love to build on the momentum she got against Grimes. Whatever the result of the fight may be, seeing these two young fighters go out there and battle it out would be exciting to watch.
