Joanna Jedrzejczyk opens doors with win over Rosi Sexton


Polish powerhouse Joanna Jedrzejczyk scored the biggest win in her mixed martial arts career after she defeated Rosi “The Surgeon” Sexton at yesterday’s Cage Warriors 69 event.

Jedrzejczyk used her power and striking to finish Sexton halfway through the second round.

Sexton, a former Cage Warriors champion, now extends her losing streak to three matches. I wouldn’t say that Sexton should hang up the gloves just yet. She is just a crossroads in her career. A lot of really good fighters have losing streaks. It was only a few years ago that her fellow Englishman Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy was riding a four-fight losing streak.

As for Jedrzejczyk, she is 7-0. With this latest victory under belt, the sky is the limit for the Polish fighter. She could stay with Cage Warriors and eventually become their champion if they go along with their plans to expand their women’s division.

She is also under contract with Invicta Fighting Championships – a promotion that is seemingly heading for a new era. With Invicta entering a partnership with UFC FIGHT PASS, they have a chance to build on their flyweight division. Jedrzejczyk would certainly add some power to the 125-pound weight class and could become a contender for current flyweight title holder Barb “The Little Warrior” Honchak

There is also the possibility that she could drop to strawweight and compete in the UFC. Although the promotion has already signed a plethora of fighters, they are always looking for international talent to fill their ranks.
