Levant teen poised to become state’s youngest MMA fighter

Jayda Bailey has been studying martial arts since before she first went to school.

As a senior at Hermon High School, life changes are now inevitable after graduation. And the Levant teenager will get a head start on her personal progression on Nov. 3 when she makes her mixed martial arts debut during a show to be hosted by New England Fights at the Aura nightclub in Portland.

That debut fight, an amateur bantamweight (135-pound) contest against Fryeburg’s Denae Dostie, will come just eight days after Bailey turns 18, making her the youngest person to compete in a regulated MMA bout in Maine since the state legalized the sport in 2009, according to NEF officials.
