Rosi Sexton’s 12-year MMA career may have come to a close, but it’s not too late to take a look back at the 36-year-old’s accomplishments in the cage.

In the first installment of Cage Warriors’ Legends of Cage Warriors series, the seven-time CWFC veteran recalls her experiences with the promotion.

Sexton competed at the promotion’s first event in 2002, dubbed Armageddon. She earned the first of her six wins under the Cage Warriors banner that night with a 40-second armbar submission of Serena Saunders.

While she was earning her PhD in Theoretical Computer Science from the University of Manchester, Sexton would continue fighting for the promotion. She quickly became the face of women’s MMA in the UK.

The fighter then spent time with BoDog Fight and Bellator before returning to the promotion in 2010. Her second stint with the organization is where Sexton really shined. She battered Sally Krumdiack before edging Roxanne Modafferi and Aisling Daly on the scorecards.

Sexton’s success earned her a call to the UFC in 2013, but the natural flyweight struggled while competing as a bantamweight.

She returned to Cage Warriors in 2014 for her final fight before hanging up her gloves. The veteran fell short against Joanna Jędrzejczyk, marking her first defeat in the CWFC cage. But after compiling a record of 6-1 for the organization over the span of 12 years and three separate stints, there’s no denying the Sexton is worthy of the designation “legend.”
