Valerie Loureda added some impressive footage to her highlight reel at Bellator 243, picking up a second-round knockout win.

After ducking and dodging for almost 10 minutes, Loureda planted her feet and landed a right hand that dropped Tara Graff cold near the end of the second bell. Loureda quickly pounced and picked up the stoppage at the 5:00 mark of the round.

Loureda, a decorated taekwondo competitor, picked up her third professional win in MMA after a year-plus layoff from competition. Graff drops to 1-2.

Prior to Bellator 243, Loureda defended her social media presence, saying sexy photos she posts are not for men but rather for herself.
