Rising MMA superstar Valerie Loureda has been branded "cringey" for her celebratory dance at Bellator 243.
Loureda scored a big win on Friday as she stopped Tara Graff at the end of round two to improve her professional MMA record to 3-0.
After stopping her opponent, she broke into a victory dance to celebrate her dominant win.
The 22-year-old celebrated in style with a sultry and energetic dance, but her actions inside the cage didn't sit well with some MMA fans who took to social media to express their thoughts.
She hit the buzzer-beater KO and then the celebration began for @valerielouredaa :boom::dancer:

One Twitter user wrote: "Big fan and follower but that dance at end was cringe."
A second tweeted: "I love it. I hate it. I dont know what to think."
A third added: "As a fellow Cuban, this was hella cringey."
The American Top Team fighter trains alongside UFC superstar Jorge Masvidal and she's credited him for guiding her career.
"I'm very confident I can be the next face to come out of Miami, the next female fighter. I don't know any female fighter that is Cuban, and I'm very confident I could be the next one," she explained.
"I know that I can get the same support the community has given Jorge. I have the same coaches as Jorge, the same training, and I'm following his steps in the sport.
"He's guiding me a lot. I'm very confident in my camp, in my team, my city behind me. And I'm going to win this fight for the Cubans here in Miami."
"I'm proud of that performance."@ValerieLouredaa weighed in on the win that took her to a 3-0 record as a pro here at #Bellator243. pic.twitter.com/4TSJ1C1vQf
