The final bout of the Cage Warriors Women’s Flyweight Tournament to crown the promotion’s inaugural champion has been made official for Cage Warriors 49, which takes place at St David’s Hall in Cardiff, Wales. Tournament finalists Rosi Sexton and Sheila Gaff are now officially scheduled to meet for the right to be called champion on October 27.
Sexton (13-2) is currently on an 8-1 run, which has seen the Brit take out the likes of Roxanne Modafferi and Carina Damm, most recently taking a contentious unanimous decision over Aisling Daly at Cage Warriors 47 in June to advance to the finals.
Gaff (10-4) is currently riding a three-fight win-streak, all of which come by way of knockout. “The German Tank” most recently knocked out Jennifer Maia in March, quite literally punching her ticket to the finals.
