Looks like attending the Mayweather vs. Mcgregor fight sparked a fire in Demi Lovato. Not only was the Mexican-American beauty present at the epic fight, she also performed the national anthem to open up the Las Vegas event!
The 25-year-old star shared a photograph with the undefeated champion, Floyd Mayweather, writing “He said ‘I chose you for my last fight’ what a f*cking honor. Thank you Floyd for such an incredible experience. It was an honor to sing for you. Thank you and CONGRATS CHAMP!!!”
So we were almost not surprised when the singer dropped this gem on Monday night, detailing what she’s been up to:
I'm so beyond excited because I just received my blue belt in #brazilianjiujitsu!!!! I fell in love with #BJJ over a year ago and have been training several times a week ever since.. thank you so much to @chilcote.dunn @captainHarlan_ @tarsisbjj for giving me my belt along with one of the most important and special women in my life today @officialdaniellemartin/@trueboundaries - I love you so much and couldn't be more grateful for you also special shoutout to @jayglazer for flying in to give me my belt as well!!!

That’s right, Lovatics, Demi has received her blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! Lovato couldn’t contain her excitement, captioning her selfie, “I'm so beyond excited because I just received my blue belt in #brazilianjiujitsu!!!! I fell in love with #BJJ over a year ago and have been training several times a week ever since…”
The owner of the Los Angeles strength-training facility Unbreakable Performance, Jay Glazer, expressed how proud he is of Lovato, captioning the photo, “I'm more proud of the work @ddlovato puts in with nobody watching than I am what she does with the world watching. Congrats on achieving your blue belt today in #bjj, YOU put the grind in!” Danielle Martin, a model turned Jiu Jitsu black belt, also weighed in with her own post to congratulate the pop star on her amazing accomplishment.
I'm more proud of the work @ddlovato puts in with nobody watching than i am what she does with the world watching. Congrats on achieving your blue belt today in #bjj, YOU put the grind in!.

This chica has long been a feminist inspiration to many, and an advocate for accepting who you are and loving yourself! Who know?! Maybe we'll be seeing the brunette beauty doing some professional fighting in the future! Either way, this Latina Bombshell is now a certified #Badass and we couldn’t be prouder! Congratulations!
