    Rosi Sexton Prepares For Main Event Bout At CWFC 40
    By Robert Sargent on February 21, 2011

    In five days, Cage Warriors champion and top UK talent Rosi “The Surgeon” Sexton will compete in her home country of England for the first time in over five years when she headlines Cage Warriors Fighting Championship 40 in North London. Sexton will face Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi.

    The 125-pound matchup will mark Modafferi’s debut in the weight class, and it is arguably the biggest women’s bout in the promotion’s history; if not the biggest to take place in European MMA to date. Sexton is eager to compete in front of friends and family, but knows that she will face a tough opponent.

    “It’s perfect,” Sexton says of the fight. “I’ve not fought in England in over five years, so I’m really looking forward to competing on home soil. Roxanne is a top level opponent and very highly rated, and I’m excited to test my skills against her. It’s going to be a tough fight!”

    Following lengthy layoffs that saw her compete sparingly from mid-2007 until June of last year, Sexton is pleased to be competing for the second time in just three months. “It’s really good to be fighting more often now,” she says. “I think that’s so
    mething that I’ve struggled with in the past; because the gaps between my fights had been so long, I’d always been dealing with a bit of ring rust.

    “I do enjoy competing in England, though,” she adds when asked about fighting in her home country. “I have a lot of friends who have never had the chance to see me fight live before, and it’s great to be able to have my team around me. I’m looking forward to having a home crowd.”
