WACO, Texas (KWTX) - Waco native Hailey Cowan will make her highly anticipated UFC debut on Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cowan is set to fight Jamey-Lyn Horth at 3:30 p.m. central. The women’s bantamweight matchup will be broadcasted on ESPN+.

Third time might be the charm for Cowan. She was scheduled to fight in UFC events two other times, but both were cancelled.

Cowan is a Baylor acrobatics and tumbling alum. She made the transition from gymnast to fighter with the help of Blitz Sport MMA & Fitness in Robinson.
