Mixed Martial Arts champ Rosi Sexton has seen the rise of women in the sport over the years.

The 33-year-old former Kendrick schoolgirl, who is from Crowthorne but now lives in Manchester, said: Its like any male dominated activity it can seem intimidating to women at first.

"When I started, there were very few women involved in MMA. Over the last few years, this has started to change. More women are starting to try MMA now, and crossing over from other sports like judo or Thai boxing.

"I think the next few years are going to be really exciting for the womens sport in this country.

Its not something many women would think of taking up but that may change with more female fights being showcased on the larger MMA shows and more women joining MMA clubs. Its not something that will appeal to everyone, but it would be great to see more women give it a go.
