UFC Fight Night 30 – Manchester

Rosi Sexton is facing Jessica Andrade in her hometown on the Machida vs. Munoz fight card today, October 26th 2013 at the Phones 4u Arena.

Rosi  trained at Manchester University Jitsu Club and then went on to teach it after I had already left and gone on to teach Macclesfield Jitsu Club, where I’ve been for the last 14 years. I remember meeting her at regional events and gradings for our students, and watched her rise through the ranks and compete at our national competitions working her way to the top and being national champion.

As well as us both having trained at the same club, we also had the same instructor John Allen, who also taught me at Leeds University in the late eighties and early nineties as well as the late nineties helping me train up for my black belt.

As well as being the UK’s first female UFC fighter in mixed martial arts (MMA), she is also a sports therapist, osteopath, mathematician and writer for Fighters Only magazine, as well as having a PhD in theoretical computer science from Manchester University, a maths degree from Cambridge University, and on top of all that, she is a Mum too!
