rosi-sexton-4.jpgEngland’s first female representative in the UFC will fight in front of a friendly crowd, as Rosi Sexton (13-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) meets Brazilian Jessica Andrade (9-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at October’s UFC Fight Night 30 event in Manchester, England.

Sexton today announced the matchup on Twitter.

“It’s official!” Sexton wrote. “First women’s UFC fight in UK – me vs @JessicaMMApro; & first time in my career fighting in my home town!”

UFC officials later confrimed the matchup but have yet to announce the Andrade vs. Sexton bout’s placement on the card.

Featuring a middleweight headliner of Michael Bisping vs. Mark Munoz, UFC Fight Night 30 takes place Oct. 26 at Manchester Arena in England. The night’s main card airs on FOX Sports 2 following prelims on Facebook.

Both Sexton and Andrade look for their first UFC win.

Sexton made her octagon debut at June’s UFC 161 event in Canada but was outwrestled by Alexis Davis and suffered a unanimous-decision loss. The result snapped a three-fight win streak for the longtime martial artist.

Meanwhile, Andrade debuted in July, fighting on the main card at UFC on FOX 8, and was handed a second-round TKO loss by onetime women’s bantamweight title challenger Liz Carmouche. Prior to the defeat, Andrade had been 7-1 in his past eight fights.

The latest UFC Fight Night 30 card now includes:
