Valerie Releda upset by Hannah Guy’s first defeat – MMA Sports

Hannagai Turned attention to the wind Valerie Releda, And it was rewarded on Friday night at Bellator 259.

Guy endured the first adversity, but got a unanimous decision from a judge at Mohigan Sun Arena with scores of 30-27, 29-28, 29-28 to hand over the first defeat to Lureda. There was a big backlash.

Given how the fight unfolded, it’s hard to believe that Guy didn’t submit his submission because she had problems twice.

Guy (3-1 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) came out as an aggressor in Round 1, but Rureda (3-1 MMA, 3-1 BMMA) landed a 2-3 combo and hooked to the left. Lureda finished in a hurry, but realized that it didn’t work and decided to let go of Guy. When Guy moved forward, Lureda’s stand-up continued to look good, but Guy changed levels to secure a takedown. Guy moved to the arm bar and secured it, but Rureda managed to escape and return to her feet. Between Loureda’s knockout and Guy’s threatened submission, it was a close combat for the judge to score.

But Round 2 was a different story after Guy changed levels early. Loureda first closed the takedown and finished at the top, but Guy reversed the position and secured a full mount with 3:30 remaining. Lureda was in serious danger as Guy trapped Lureda’s arm and ate punches and elbows to secure the S-mount. The umpire seemed to be trying to stop the fight until Lureda’s toughness shines again, and she managed to escape the dire situation.

“I honestly thought I was going to end up with a triangle,” Guy said. “It was great for her because she just slipped off there. Her defense was really good. I was really impressed. I didn’t know what her ground game was, but it was much better than I expected. I don’t feel uncomfortable with her. “

In Round 3, Guy didn’t waste his time jumping in search of the guillotine and trying to fight Matt. Lureda ran away, wisely backtracked and stood up, but she was visibly exhausted while Guy was moving forward. Releda just abandoned her basics and instead threw an unconnected flashy strike and put her in a bad position. Guy secured the takedown in the last moment and finished in a dominant position to secure the round and victory.
