Rosi Sexton Injured, Out Of Cage Warriors 43 Title FightA concussion in training has forced UK star Rosi “The Surgeon” Sexton out of a CWFC Women’s Super Flyweight Championship bout with Sheila “The German Tank” Gaff. The bout, which was to take place at Cage Warriors 43 on July 9th in North London, England, has now been scrapped entirely. confirmed the injury with multiple sources today, including Sexton herself. A timetable for her return is not yet known. The submission ace had been scheduled to make her third straight appearance for Cage Warriors in July and has won back-to-back fights inside the promotion.

Sexton (12-2-0) previously held Cage Warriors gold in 2005 and had looked to add a second CWFC title to her mantle in July by defeating Gaff (9-4-1), who has posted back-to-back first-round knockout wins. Sexton bounced back from a loss to Zoila Gurgel in Bellator last year by stopping Sally Krumdiack in November, and picked up a big victory over Roxanne Modafferi for Cage Warriors in February.

According to Sexton, training for the title fight had been going well. She expressed her disappointment with the injury and will take time to rest up and recover. A men’s bout will be promoted to the co-feature spot on the Cage Warriors 43 card that was previously occupied by the cancelled Sexton-Gaff matchup. Gaff is no longer expected to compete on the card and is seeking a fight outside of the promotion.

Cage Warriors Fighting Championship 43 takes place on July 9th at the HMV Forum in Kentish Town, North London, England. The event will still feature a 117-pound catchweight bout between Maiju “Mai” Kujala and Simona Soukupova.


  1. Damnation 🙁

  2. first amanda nunes , then carano , now sexton , atleast budd-derandemanie happened and so far it looks goopd for kaufman- carmouche and coenen -tate . i just hope the coenen – tate fight isn’t just a takedown stall on top ride out the dec win. i hate how the judging is pro wrestling top position, it doesn’t matter how active or how many subs the bottom fighter is attempting , the judges onl;y see being on top as winning . it just is wrecking the sport. its not fighting anymore its turning into wrestling . we already have wwe , wrestling doesn’t win fights , it might win a dec in a sport where the judges are ignorant to actual fighting, but in a real fight damage and chokes or kos win the fight.
