Midway grad back in the octagon for 2nd pro fight

By  | 

WACO, Texas (KWTX) It's been a little while but Midway grad Hailey Cowan is back in the octagon.

Residents of Central Texas won’t have to go too far to see her second MMA fight as a pro.

She’ll face Sha Whittington in LFA 52 at the Bell County Expo Center tomorrow night.

After graduating Midway High, Cowan was a two time All-American on the Baylor acrobatics and tumbling team.

But tomorrow night, she'll be mixing it up in Belton, after a tough loss to Victoria Mason at LFA 40 in Dallas back in May.

The fight was her pro debut, after going undefeated as an amateur.

Cowan says she actually fought through a foot injury in the loss.

So for this fight, she took a little extra time heal up, training at Blitz Sports.

You can buy tickets on the Bell County Expo Center’s website or watch it on AXS TV.
