Rosi Sexton vs. Sally Krumdiack

Cage Warriors Fighting Championship 39 on November 27th.

Sexton (10-2-0) will look to rebound after suffering her second career defeat in June when she was knocked out by Bellator 115-pound women’s tournament finalist Zoila Frausto. The bout was Sexton’s first in a full calendar year and cost her a spot in the Bellator tournament. Sexton’s only other defeat came at the hands of another much larger fighter, Gina Carano in 2006, and she rallied back with five straight wins including victories over Carina Damm and Debi Purcell. Now beginning the battle back to the top of the 125-pound ranks, Sexton will face an accomplished grappler with solid striking.

Krumdiack (8-3-0) has quietly emerged as one of the top contenders in the 125-pound division. Aside from a highly controversial loss to Saori Ishioka at Jewels: “Sixth Ring” last December, in which a miscommunication and referee error led to a premature stoppage, Krumdiack has only tasted defeat once in four years. That loss came against pound-for-pound standout Tara LaRosa in March of 2009, but Krumdiack has looked very impressive in recent bouts and handed Hiroko Kitamura her first loss in one-sided fashion in June. An upset of Sexton would place Krumdiack among the elite at 125.
