Ronda Rousey is the Greatest of All Time in MMA, says Valerie Loureda

Bellator star Valerie Loureda feels that former UFC champion Ronda Rousey is the Greatest of all time when it comes to MMA. Loureda revealed the same during her recent interview with Helen Yee and noted that Rousey is an inspiration to many.

“My MMA GOAT is Ronda Rousey. It’s Ronda because I believe, to have the personality and character to make a difference, and be the first female in the UFC – she changed women’s sports forever. It’s something I’m so grateful to her for. I admire her a lot for it, and without her doing what she did- having the strength and courage to make a name for herself, I would be able to do what I’m doing today. So, it’s Ronda,” said Loureda.

Loureda, meanwhile, is 4-1 in her professional MMA career and picked up a win against Taylor Turner at Bellator 271: Cyborg vs. Kavanagh.
