Coach & Spouse of UFC’s Hailey Cowan Arrested for Sexual Abuse

Oh, boy. Here we go again. #BREAKING news just dropped. A coach from the Waco area, known for his MMA expertise, is in hot water. He’s accused of crossing lines that should never be blurred, involving a young girl he was training. Over three years, no less. The details? They’re all laid out in an affidavit. For those itching for more, click away: and yeah, there’s a photo too: [pic link]. KWTX News 10 didn’t hold back on the scoop, marking the calendar for May 20, 2024.

Jacob Brennan. Ever heard the name? He’s tied the knot with Hailey Cowan, a fighter you might’ve seen in the UFC. Well, turns out he’s been arrested. The charge? Allegedly, he sexually abused a minor. Yikes.

And then, bam, an ad pops up. Because, of course, life’s got to remind us it goes on, right?

Diving deeper, KWTX 10 spills the beans. Brennan found himself behind bars on May 19, courtesy of McLennan County (Texas) Jail. A woman stepped forward, accusing him of unwanted touches between 2013 and 2015. She was just 13 at the time. Brennan? He was 30. Now, he’s facing charges of indecency with a child with sexual contact. In Texas, that’s no small deal—a second-degree felony that could lock him away for two to 20 years.

Fast forward to now, Brennan’s 40 and running Next Generation MMA/Blitz MMA in Waco. The affidavit paints a grim picture. The victim recounted how Brennan “kissed her hundreds of times and touched her vagina above and below her clothes hundreds of times between 2013 and 2015.” This nightmare unfolded in various corners of the gym, nearly every day. She broke her silence to the police on Nov. 2, 2023.

But wait, there’s more. Brennan, apparently, poured his heart out in Facebook messages, talking about love and kisses. When gym members got wind of the abuse and confronted him, his stories were all over the place. Lies, lies, and more lies, the affidavit suggests.

Cowan and Brennan’s love story began in 2022, right before she snagged a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series. But after facing Jamey-Lyn Horth at UFC on ESPN 45 in April 2023 and losing, she hasn’t stepped back into the ring.

And there you have it. A tale that’s as complex as it is disturbing. Stay tuned, folks.
