The long rumored Roxy Modafferi vs Tara Larosa rematch has been signed – at least on Roxy’s side. Above is a portion of her contract, amusingly modified. So what’s the dilly on where, when and who? The fight is being put on by none other than new company Moosin and will be part of their US card headlined by Tim Sylvia vs Mariusz Pudzianowski fight on May 21st in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The event is kinda odd – it’s being organized by a South Korean company, promoted by Butterbean, and is being headlined by freakshow / World’s Strongest Man competitor Mariusz Pudzianowski. But it’s got some other decent fighters on the card like Travis Lutter, Travis Wiuff, Yves Edwards, and Forrest Petz … and now Roxy vs Tara, which is a pretty big deal in women’s fighting. Tara Larosa was considered the #1 fighter at 135 (and one of the p4p top 3) till she strangely decided to concentrate on the less competitive 125 division for a while. This fight will apparently be fought at a 130 pound catchweight and should be very awesome. If you’re in the area, I strongly suggest you check it out, if not just to see how freakishly big that Pudz guy is in real life.
