Canadian flyweight standout and LFA champ Jamey-Lyn Horth has signed on with the UFC.

Horth (5-0), 31, fighting out of and born in Squamish, British Columbia, captured the LFA women’s flyweight championship in December 2021, but has not fought since. She was expected to compete against UFC alum Sabina Mazo last year, only for the bout to fall through.

Horth signing with the UFC was announced during Friday’s LFA 155 broadcast. No debut date or opponent has been revealed, but the UFC is heavily rumored to be returning to Canada shortly, with a June 10 date in Vancouver a possibility.

A former BFL (Battlefield Fight League) champ, also at 125lbs, Horth has been on the radar for some time. In addition to going 5-0 as a pro, the Canadian also had an unbeaten amateur run. As she’s worked her way towards signing with a top promotion, however, Horth has struggled to find opponents willing to tango with her.

In an interview with The Squamish Chief following the cancellation of the Mazo fight, Horth revealed that LFA had reached out to six or seven replacement opponents to keep the fight together. None said yes.

In all five of her pro bouts to date, Horth captured the win inside the distance. She’s previously turned up on our 10 Prospects the UFC Should Sign feature. Horth has, in fact, made the list the last two years running.
