"She tweeted the other day 'Who's next?' and before I even found out I was getting a contract with WWE, I tweeted back, 'me,'" Loureda said of Rousey. "That's the goal I have one day."

Furthermore, Loureda explained that Ronda Rousey was her inspiration to get into the world of mixed martial arts.

"I never watched MMA before in my life," Loureda said, "and just so happens, Ronda was fighting, and I saw a beautiful woman fighting in a cage ... and I got goosebumps."

"I said, 'Nana, if she's doing that, I can do it too,' and that's really what gave me all that fire and passion inside of me to begin my martial arts journey."

Currently, Loureda is going to be going through WWE Performance Center and Ronda Rousey just lost the WWE Smackdown Women's Championship to Liv Morgan at Money in the Bank.
