Was just checking out the latest Smack Girl lineup and once again there’s a big fucking ommission: Roxy Modafferi. Not only that, but the lineup generally seems like it was put together by someone with a blindfold picking names out of a hat. They’ve got Megumi Fujii (aka MEGA MEGU, one of the best out there) fighting Cindy Hales, who has a 1-0 record. Cindy’s only win comes against lesbian blood artist Shawn Tamaribuchi, who we love but isn’t grounds for earning a fight against someone like Megumi.
I don’t pretend to know what the fuck is going on in Japan. In fact, I am probably the most ignorant person out there when it comes to how things work in their fight scene. Japanese promotions really don’t seem to give a shit about creating proper rankings and competitive fights between the best in their shows. Someone who’s won three in a row will just as likely fight someone who’s lost three, or worse someone who’s never even fought real MMA before. They simply don’t care. And fine: book the squash matches and book the fighters who put asses in the seats. But Roxy Modafferi is one of the best female fighters in the game right now, and she kinda sorta lives in Japan. It’s stupid not to take advantage of the situation and have her fighting for Smack Girl.
