What's the talk about?
Professor Richard Wiseman interviews Dr Rosi Sexton, exploring her remarkable journey from theoretical computer scientist to the UK’s first female UFC fighter (Ultimate Fighting Championship).
Along the way they will take a skeptical look at martial arts and the self-defence industry, talk about why being punched in the face doesn’t feel like you might expect, and discuss some of the lessons Rosi’s taken away from 15 years in the Mixed Martial Arts world. She has written about the problem of performance-enhancing drugs (doping) in combat sports, and is a supporter of the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association, VADA.
