Hailey Cowan Training With Miranda Maverick Ahead Of DWCS Debut “It was exactly what I needed”

Interview with Hailey Cowan below

Hailey Cowan (6-2) discusses her bantamweight fight against Claudia Leite (7-2) at DWCS on Aug. 16. Hailey also spoke about how this opportunity came together, training in Colorado for this camp and having UFC flyweight Miranda Maverick as one of her main training partners.

“I’ve been to Colorado twice for this camp. First time I went in May, I worked with Lauren Murphy, Miranda Maverick … a lot of girls out there. I went to go train again – I just got back actually – Lauren had just fought. But I did get to work a lot with Miranda which was perfect. Claudia isn’t very tall; Miranda isn’t very tall. So, I got to see that look. It was nice having someone shorter, getting on my legs and dealing with that. It was exactly what I needed.”

Fight card:

Thomas Paull vs. Esteban Ribovics – 155 lbs
Claudio Ribeiro vs. Iván Valenzuela – 185 lbs
Hailey Cowan vs. Cláudia Leite – 135 lbs
Nazim Sadykhov vs. A. Hassanzada – 155 lbs
Jack Cartwright vs. Jose Johnson – 135 lbs
