Roxy Modafferi Highlight and Interview!

We’re back with another interview, this time with top female fighter and fellow jackal Roxanne Modafferi. After recording the interview, I decided not enough people knew how totally awesome Roxy is, so I made a highlight video featuring some of the best moments from all the fights floating around the internet. It was REALLY REALLY hard to crunch this down to something around 5 minutes … the original draft was sitting over 10, but I knew that was a bit excessive. God knows, 5 minutes of Rob Zombie is almost too much as it is, but I find when you’re making a fighter highlight, nothing beats techno metal.

Once you’re done watching the video and you’re in total awe, check out the interview. I apologize for being less (or more depending on your POV) retarded than usual – I was sick so couldn’t really get drunk as I normally do before radio show. But fortunately Roxy carries the show and talks all about life in Japan, the female fight scene, and of course her career past and present. It’s 30 minutes of interviewy goodness!


(or check it out on the handy audio player in the sidebar)

Roxy will be defending her Fatal Femmes Fighting belt on April 3rd in Anahiem, California against Vanessa Porto. I’d fly down on my personal jet but the pope has a conference on world peace that I simply can’t miss … Angelina and Brad insist I attend. For those of you in the area who love a good women scrap, check it out.

    I love how she’s the best pound-for-pound 135 pound fighter in the world!

    That said, I shall watch the highlight and then listen to the show.

  • Swedish guy

    That was a delight to see!

  • Captain

    Nice highlight, FL. The music really ruined it for me though. It seems the hardest thing in making highlights might be utilizing music in a way that compliments the fighter or the fights you are highlighting. See below for one of my favorite pairings of music and fight clips.

    My first inclination for a Roxy highlight would have been to set it to No Doubt – Just a Girl and include at least one clip of Karo being a jackass on Inside MMA. The more I think about it the more I think that would have been quite fuckin apropos and awesome.

    Nice omoplatta by Roxy.

    You should have made this Modafferi To The Top!!

  • Lifer

    Roxy u are so great! I want to spoon and read my first edition Dungeon Master’s guide together!

  • Archivist

    Mah-velous highlight. Punch their teeth out, Roxy :-)

  • Anubis

    That highlight reel was a hell of a lot more entertaining than watching Bob Bitch Slapp lose to Jan Frankenstien Nortje. Kudos Fightlinker for introducing me a real MMA fighter working out of Japan.

  • #1 jackal

    Mad respect for ya Roxy. Traveling to Japan to train, that is some cool shit.

    Good interview, she sounds like a sweetheart.

  • Tertio

    Awesome highlight and to make an awesome highlight you need awesome clips and to have awesome clips you need an awesome fighter but i ll stop my worlds longest sentence right here and give mad props to Ryan for an awesome video and crazy mad props to Roxy for being an awesome fighter AWESOME.

  • Jemaleddin

    Roxy is awesome. I have absolute respect for people who are authentic, and she just exudes authenticity.

    It’s too bad you didn’t ask her about the GinaCaronaWeight weight class: would she be willing to fight at 140? Because I’d love to see her smack the smug look off of Gina’s face.

  • Vess

    Roxy could teach some UFC fighters about how to be aggressive. Good skills on the ground and standup. Is there anyway to see the femme fatale event on the internet, I am willing to break open the bank vault (my wallet) and pay for it.

    I also just noticed that FL has a very good radio voice, not too harsh and not too wimpy.

  • fightfan

    Good interview. Highlight vid was pretty kck ass. Going to have to check her out if I get the chance to see her fight

  • fightlinker

    I tried as hard as i could not to ask about Carano. As far as I’m concerned she’s a non issue since she’s currently in the 160 division :-p

  • Roxy

    :D thanks!

    Lifer- Are you really Luke Cummo? o_O
    Captain- I love that song by No Doubt, actually, but I think Ryan chose a great song for the video! :)

    That was such a great video, I really owe ya one, Ryan ^^

  • Dangerfield

    My title suggestion got owned.

  • koolpaw

    ohhhh Roxy Campaign has started :D

  • Mike_N

    Great highlight, great interview. Good luck with EliteXC, Roxy–try not to choke $kala out on principle.

  • Big D D

    Great stuff Ryan.

    Roxy you make beating women into an art.

    When you lived with your parents, I bet your Dad’s gun was really dirty…seeing as he didn’t have to clean it in the family room while your date waited for you to get ready.

    Keep up the tremendous work

  • Omomatta

    Unreal Roxanne. You’re phenomenal. Keep it up.

  • Stellar53

    Great interview….we love you Roxy….

  • kentyman

    I think it’s great that such a down-to-earth, sweet-sounding girl is into kickin’ ass and hanging out on such a crude website. Nice girls love horse-cock jokes! ;)

    Roxy, we’re anxiously awaiting your next fight!

  • Dibiase

    Lovin all the content guys. Your soothing voices keep me from snapping at work at every day. Serenity Now.

  • kentyman

    Serenity now…

    …insanity later.
