Women will do battle in the Octagon for the first time on English
soil when Rosi Sexton
collides with Jessica
UFC Fight Night 30.
The women’s bantamweight scrap joins a bill topped by a pivotal
middleweight showdown between Michael
Bisping and Mark Munoz.
The Oct. 26 event airs live on Fox Sports 1 and takes place at
Phones4U Arena in Manchester.
Sexton, 36, recently saw a three-fight winning streak snapped by
Davis, who outpointed “The Surgeon” this in June at UFC 161.
Prior to that setback, Sexton earned a trio of victories under the
Cage Warriors banner, topping Roxanne
Modafferi and Aisling
Daly before inking her UFC deal.
Like her opponent, Andrade was defeated in her Octagon debut,
falling to onetime UFC title challenger Liz
Carmouche one month ago at UFC on Fox 8. The setback marked the
third career defeat for the 21-year-old Brazilian, who has picked
up all nine of her career wins via stoppage.
