MMA fighter Valerie Loureda has continued to work on her training while stuck at home during the coronavirus outbreak. For her latest Instagram update she showed off her fitness progress in a green bikini.
Several female mixed martial artists, such as Paige VanZant, have not remained idle while staying home for the COVID-19 crisis, and have used the time to condition their bodies. Last week Loureda shared footage of training her core with an outdoor workout alongside her boyfriend, Fabian Guerra. A couple days later she showcased her backside in a steamy bikini shot.
The Bellator competitor has not been shy about putting her body on display in recent weeks. Her Instagram posts have been a mixture of workout clips and sultry bikini pictures. In her most recent upload Loureda wore a green bikini and had a matching palm tree-print wallpaper behind her. The Floridian included a caption that references her hometown along with two palm tree emoji.
Loureda was filmed from the side and wore her hair down straight for the photo. The green straps of the bathing suit ran below and above her cleavage, and with her body turned to the side this offered fans a great view of her figure. She sat with her left arm resting on her right knee which helped accentuate her athletic thighs. The Tae Kwon Do expert wore a white watch on her wrist and a giant smile on her face.
Many of her 232,000 Instagram followers took notice of the bikini shot, and more than 29,000 users smashed the “like” button in just over 12 hours. The 21-year-old received over 380 replies as her comment section was flooded with heart-eye and fire emoji. Fellow female mixed martial artists Pearl Gonzalez and Tracey Cortex were among those to show their appreciation with emoji.
“Put on for the city,” a fan commented referring to Loureda’s caption.
“Oh lord,” an admiring follower wrote.
“Hot tamale,” another responded.
“When you get your big contract and you are ready to list the condo and move into something big let me know,” an MMA enthusiast commented.
Fans were treated to more shots of Loureda in the bikini as she posted a short video clip and a couple snaps in the swimsuit to her Instagram story. She also included a side-by-side of her in a fight and in the green suit.
Earlier this month the Bellator fighter posted a short video in bra and panties and said in her caption that she was close to making her fighting weight of 115 pounds.
