CWFC 69: Jedrzejczyk vs. Sexton
Former CWFC champion Rosi Sexton (pictured) will return to the promotion on June 7 for a mouthwatering flyweight clash with undefeated Polish prospect Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
The pair will collide at Cage Warriors 69: Super Saturday, CWFC’s eighth event of the year, which is set to take place at The Forum in Kentish Town, London, England.
Sexton (13-4) owns a 6-0 record under the Cage Warriors banner, including victories over the likes of Aisling Daly, Roxanne Modafferi and Sally Krumdiack.
The 36-year-old English fighter, who has also competed for Bellator, will be back in action for the first time since a two-fight stint with the UFC in 2013, which saw her drop decision losses to Alexis Davis and Jessica Andrade.
Sexton said: “I’m really looking forward to fighting on Cage Warriors again against a very tough opponent. Cage Warriors is a fantastic promotion; I started my career with them and since then they’ve gone from strength to strength. In my experience, no promotion in the world takes better care of its fighters and I’m excited to be part of that again.”
Jedrzejczyk (5-0) will be making her debut for Cage Warriors, having carved out a reputation as one of the most exciting prospects in women’s MMA since making her professional debut two years ago.
A 26-year-old native of Poland, Jedrzejczyk recently signed with Invicta FC and will goes into the clash with Sexton on the back of particularly impressive wins against Karla Benitez and Julia Berezikova.
“This is a huge fight for my career,” said Jedrzejczyk. “My opponent is extremely strong and experienced but I’m very determined to win this fight and put on a great show for the fans.”
Meanwhile, injuries sustained by both fighters in recent days have forced the removal of the featherweight bout between Liam James and Nad Narimani from the CWFC 69: Super Saturday bill. Check out the finalised card below…
