Representing her adopted home of Japan, Roxanne Modafferi will look to get back on the winning track when she faces Molly “The Maulinator” Helsel at King of the Cage: “Toryumon” on January 30, 2010 in Okinawa, Japan. The fight will be one of many “Japan vs USA” bouts on the impressive card and is expected to be contested at 135 pounds.
Helsel is 8-8-1 with her losing fights coming to a nice little who’s who of her division: Sarah Kaufman, Carina Damm, Julie Kedzie, etc. She’s got decent striking, decent ground game, and always brings it for her fights. What makes me the happiest about this matchup is that she fights at 125 – 135 pounds, which should be a nice change for Roxy after having to face the much larger Marloes Coenen.
(oh, just a reminder, we’re still selling shirts to support Roxy – all the money goes straight to her to help pay for the training she needs to kick ass!)
