Former NCAA All-American gymnast Hailey Cowan landed a brutal knockout head kick to her opponent at LFA 55 on Friday night. In just her third professional mixed martial arts contest, “All Hail” Hailey Cowan knocked out Jessica Sotack in the second round to improve her record to 2-1.
Not only did Cowan knock Sotack out, but she knew from the instant she delivered the blow that her opponent would not get up, and chose not to continue the assault.
Cowan began training as a gymnast at age five and began competition at age eight. Now at 26-years of age, the Texas native has taken her agility into the cage and is finding early success.
