Sexton, Gracie to coach new women's reality TV show

Cage Warriors champ Rosi Sexton and MMA trainer Cesar Gracie will team up to coach eight female fighters in a new reality TV show in search of the next great female fighter.

"Ultimate Women Combat," which is being produced by Lyle Howry Productions and the UK's Cage Warriors promotion, is slated to begin taping January 2009.

The contestants will be transported to a resort in a exotic location to train outside the comfort of their normal environment.

Sexton (9-1) fights out of Manchester, England and in her last fight defeated Debi Purcell via split decision on Aug. 18 at ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series. Sexton is also a Bodog Fight veteran, winning all three of her bouts. Sexton's lone loss was against Gina Carano in September 2006.

Gracie runs the Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu academy in Pleasant Hill, California and leads a team of fighters which includes Jake Shields, Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz.

Supermodel Joanna Krupa will serve as host.
