Brit fighter Sexton inks with EliteXC

Warrior Promotions Fighter Management Ltd on Friday announced that Rosi Sexton has signed an exclusive three-fight contract with EliteXC.

Her first fight for the promotion is expected to take place no later than August of this year, but may be brought forward to July, pending confirmation from EliteXC and CBS of a possible second edition of CBS-EliteXC Saturday Night fights on CBS Television.

Warrior Promotions indicated that several opponents have been discussed, but none confirmed.

Sexton is 8-1 as a professional mixed martial artist having won her last three bouts, all under the now defunct Bodog Fight banner. Her only loss has been to EliteXC's poster girl for women's MMA, Gina Carano.

Sexton was the last fighter to defeat highly touted, but currently suspended for alleged steroid use, Carina Damm.
