This months Bellator 238 card has taken a hit because Valerie Loureda has suffered an undisclosed injury and has been pulled from a bout against Tara Graff.
My MMA News first reported the situation, but the exact nature of Loureda’s injury or how long she’ll be out of action for is unknown at the moment. It is also unknown at this time as to whether Graff will remain on the card or be pulled from it alongside Loureda.
Graff (1-1-0) is making her Bellator MMA debut in this bout, having previously competed in King Of The Cage. Graff has picked up a single win as a professional MMA fighter and that came against Marisol Ruelas at King Of The Cage: New Frontiers. Graff is back in action for the first time in over a year, as she last competed in November of 2018.
Bellator 238 takes place on Saturday, January 25 from The Forum in Inglewood, California with Julia Budd and Cyborg headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on DAZN.
