Rosi Sexton vs Jessica Andrade added to Oct. 26 UFC show

Rosi Sexton
Rosi Sexton appeared on a British TV show today and announced that she will face Brazilian Jessica Andrade on UFC Fight Night 30 at Phones4U Arena in Manchester, England. This show will air on Fox Sports 2 in the US and on Sportsnet 360 in Canada. Rosi is a Manchester native and this will be her first time fighting in her home town. Rosi is a consistent fighter anyway. But I expect her to be highly motivated to win in front of her family and friends. She lost to Alexis Davis but I thought Rosi did a good job of taking advantage of Alexis' mistakes. The fight just didn't go Rosi's way in the third round. Jessica exhibited poor strategy against Liz Carmouche and beat herself. She chose not to be aggressive with a guillotine choke in round one and in round two walked right into a takedown and it was over. She can't beat herself like that again or she will get a one way trip to Palookaville. Where was the Jessica Andrade that I saw win that fight in Russia? I bet UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby is wondering that too. I think she is prone to mental errors and she needs to be more consistent. But she's young. We'll see how it goes.
