Rosi Sexton: Women’s Mixed Martial Arts Pioneer and Osteopath
Ep.8 of RunChatLive opens the door to something we are thrilled to bring you for the first time… guest speakers!
The video itself is not pretty (we changed software after this) but our first guest certainly packs a punch as we are joined by none other than pioneer of Women’s Mixed Martial Arts, Rosi Sexton. Once ranked number one in the world at flyweight, Rosi competed at the first ever Cage Warriors event in 2002 and over the next 10 years won 13 of her 15 fights. In 2013 she made history as the first British female to ever fight in the UFC.
In 2014, Rosi decided to concentrate on her career in Osteopathy and today works out of Olton Osteopathy in Solihull, England. She has also just released via her website Combat Sports Injury an online ‘Neck Strength Masterclass‘ course.
Over the course of the hour, Rosi tells us about about her experiences of working not just with injured fighters but people from all walks of life. She points out factors that can potentially increase the risk of injury for mixed martial artists, and discusses the essential stages of rehab necessary to reach full recovery. We note the similarities and differences between working with runners and fighters and chat about what prompted her to set up her online Combat Sports Clinic.
I totally recommend you check Rosi’s ‘Neck Strength Masterclass’, not just fighters but also therapists, coaches and anyone interested in injury prevention & rehab.

Interested in starting YOUR OWN Podcast?
Here’s two things we wish someone had told us when we started:
- WHICH PODCAST HOST?
Choosing a suitable host company to upload, store & distribute your podcast material will always depend on your individual circumstances & needs. That said, if you’re looking for a company to help your podcast grow, we recommend Podbean. Set up is super easy, as is transferring from a different host. Click HERE for details.
- WHICH RECORDING SOFTWARE?
After trying many ways to do both solo recordings and with guests, we wholeheartedly recommend you try Be.Live online software. It’s the best value, simple to use (for you AND your guest), and has some great tools to brand it as you want. Testing the software is FREE (no credit card recquired). Click HERE for full details.
