UFC Fight Night 74: Another Riser In Valerie Letourneau

valerie letourneau

Valerie Letourneau earned a second win at strawweight and handed Maryna Moroz her first career loss to start the UFC Fight Night 74 main card Sunday night.

Letourneau, a Canadian fighting in her home country, was emotional after the win and couldn’t even respond to a few questions asked by Jon Anik.

Nevertheless, the underdog scored the win and will likely find herself on the way up in the Top-10.

“I want to be in the Top-10,” she said. “I knew she would be a tough opponent, but I’ve been working really hard.”

When asked who might be next, Letourneau said she just “wants to keep moving up.”
