Cage Warriors put out a press release a few weeks ago stating their continuing efforts to make women’s MMA a solid part of their organization. After main eventing Rosi Sexton (pictured left), and bringing in women’s talent from all across the world, the next step is finally coming to pass.
The #3 ranked 125 pounder and Cage Warrior’s star Rosi Sexton will face the #6 ranked Sheila Gaff for the company’s first ever women’s title July 9th, according to an article on. This match is signed, but Sexton is waiting on Bellator MMA’s approval.
Sexton has been on a roll since her loss to #2 ranked Zoila Gurgel last year, defeating Roxanne Modafferi and Sally Krumdiack.
Gaff had a rocky 2010, as she took fights as heavy as 145, but since dropping to her natural weight for 125 in 2011, went 2-0 defeating Hanna Sillen and Cage Warriors standout Ais “The Bash” Daly; which earned her a shot at the title.
The fight is set to happen July 9 and will be aired internationally and streamed online at the Cage Warriors website.
