Rosi Sexton Interview
Rosi Sexton Interview

On The Spot ~ Rosi Sexton,%20Rosi5.jpgMother, PhD, author, musician, and champion, and we havenít even scratched the surface of Rosi Sexton. Those are just a small part of the #1 ranked 125 lbs British female fighter. Sexton, a CWFC champion, is coming off of a submission victory over Valerie Coolbaugh in her Bellator debut and is looking to continue her five-fight win streak. She currently holds a 10-1 record, with her only blemish coming at the hands of Gina Carano.

She is an experienced grappler and submission fighter with nine years of mixed martial arts training, including black belts in both Tae Kwon Do and Brazilian jiu-jitsu to go along with all of her other accolades.

Not content with the physical side of her talents, Rosi also holds a PhD in theoretical computer science, a maths degree from Cambridge, and is currently studying to become an osteopath. Rosi has fought in the USA, UK, Costa Rica, Russia, and Canada. She has wins over Carina Damm, Windy Tomomi, Julia Berezikova, and Debbi Purcell.

Between fighting and studying, this phenomenal woman writes a regular column for Fighters Only, raises her four year-old son, and tries to maintain her status as a concert pianist. Needless to say, this woman, who picked up the sport as a mere hobby, is nothing short of amazing. MMA Spotís J. Andrew Yount recently coaxed Dr. Rosi Sexton into taking a few moments off to talk about her career, hobbies, and how she maintains such a hectic schedule.
