A serious condition led to Hailey Cowan withdrawing from her
Ultimate Fighting Championship debut last weekend.

While the promotion
initially announced
that an illness forced Cowan to pull out of
a proposed bantamweight clash against Ailin Perez at
UFC Fight Night 220
, the Dana White’s Contender Series alum
offered further details regarding her withdrawal in a social media

“I had an ovarian cyst rupture [on] the night before weigh-ins,”
Cowan wrote on Instagram. “I lost a lot of blood and the doctors
pulled me. I was on weight and ready to go. Super unfortunate but
we will rebook ASAP. Apologies to the fans and my opponent but this
was beyond my control.”

The 31-year-old Cowan earned a UFC contract after taking a split
decision over Claudia Leite on the Contender Series last August.
The Waco, Texas, native is 7-2 over the course of a career that
includes stints in Invicta FC and Legacy Fighting Alliance.
