#10 | Rosi Sexton: Trailblazing the way for a generation of change
The Live On Form Podcast
Dr Rosi Sexton was the first British woman to compete in the UFC and a trailblazer long before that. Making her MMA debut in 2002, Rosi fought for Bodog, Elite XC, Bellator and Cage Warriors before making her way to the UFC.However, being a fighter in the Octagon barely begins to tell Rosi’s story. A tremendously gifted scholar and musician, Rosi attended Trinity College, Cambridge where she attained a first class maths degree. She went on to gain a masters of science degree in mathematical logic and a PhD in theoretical computer science. Her musical talents enabled her to achieve grade 7 cello and grade 8 in piano and a restless desire to prove people wrong and do what was believed couldn’t be done, is a theme that threads through her life. Her father said of her “What consistently runs through Rosi’s life is winning: she has a need to win”. Now not only an MMA icon, mathematical scholar, musician and a mother, but a successful Osteopath, treating fighters and members of the public, she was elected as a counsellor for the Green Party in 2019.We are delighted that Rosi agreed to sit down and do a podcast with us here at HMN24.

The Art of the Possible: Mixed Martial Politics (with Rosi Sexton)
Back from hiatus, Sarbjit and Matthew are talking politics and ultimate fighting with Dr. Rosemary (Rosi) Sexton, one of the candidates in the UK's ongoing Green Party leadership election. Sexton, a mathematician, musician, computer scientist, osteopath, retired MMA/UFC fighter, and most recently a Green Party Councillor, intends to transform the party into something more than a "lifestyle movement for white middle class vegans." If you like her chances, you can get in on the action at Smarkets, where she's trading at 29% as of publication time. The election wraps up the end of August.
