If Roxanne Modafferi had nuts, we here at Fightlinker would be hugging all over them. She’s by far our favorite female fighter, and not because she hangs out here … in fact, she only came around to find out who the hell was stalking her. And once she realized we weren’t likely to murder her and wear her skin ‘Silence of the Lambs’ style, she has stuck around, which makes her even cooler.
The big news coming up with Roxy is that she’s fighting stateside on April 3rd for Fatal Femmes Fighting … Los Angeles to be specific. So if you’re around there, I advise you go and check that shit out. If you’ve never seen Roxy fight, here’s a highlight video for yo’ face.
Anyways, I’d just like to point out a nice area of improvement in Roxy’s game: she’s finally getting the hang of talking some smack. She tried issuing a youtube challenge to Laura D’Auguste which just wasn’t angry enough … it needed more “You suck” and “If you’re woman enough to face me again I’ll rip your head off and shit down your throat”. But in this latest interview with Fighthype she actually does a pretty good job of laying down the fundamentals:
- Saying she ain’t giving up the belt easy
- Predicting a ground and pound KO finish
- Calling her opponent ‘underdeveloped’
While there’s still room for improvement, I just wanted to take the time to applaud Roxy for a good job in hyping up her fight. While she’s no Frank Shamrock, she’s finally displaying some cockiness that reflects her skills.
