The Ultimate Roxy

FOX has revealed the lineup for this season of The Ultimate Fighter and as heavily rumored, Fightlinker favorite Roxanne Modafferi is one of the 16 women vying to get into the house. Other female contestants include former pound for pound #1 ranked Tara LaRosa, submission master Shayna Baszler, Tristar product Valerie Letourneaux, and boxer Jessica Rakoczy.

Then there’s Ravelina Berto (the sister of boxing champ Andre Berto) and tomboy Tonya Evinger, whose claim to fame earlier in her career was threatening to sexually molest Gina Carano during their fight. And Peggy Morgan, best known for who she refused to fight rather than who she has – she turned down a match with transgendered fighter Fallon Fox and stirred some controversy when she released a Youtube video bluntly laying out why.

It’s a good mix of new and old WMMA characters and it will be very interesting to see how the new generation stacks up against the last. As well you can tell a lot of fighters were picked not so much because of their records but because of their potential. Hopefully we’re going to see some of these women taking their skills to the next level over the course of the season. And of course we’re all rooting for a Roxy win!

    I’m pretty stoked that they (almost) went with entirely interesting prospects and established vets. I thought for sure they’d throw in at least one Michelle Ould or Lia Mata’afa type in order to placate the meatheads.

    Roxy seems like a nice person, I hope she does well although I will not be watching as that show sucks and I stopped watching it during the first season as soon as I saw these idiots carrying logs in the desert.

    I think Tonya Evinger is hot. I know she is a big lesbo like most of these wmma’ers, but that wouldn’t stop me from dating her. Lesbianism is a myth in my opinion. Put me in that TUF house with these lesbos and watch what happens. There is no way they could resist me. Same goes for Rachel Maddow, Teegan and Sara, Sarah GIlbert, Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rosi. They think they are lesbians but the truth is they are just spiritually confused and haven’t met the right guy yet.

    ^ Hah! Yeah, Volds, I know you’ve posted this same thing like a thousand times before on this site but those guys would just love you right up ‘em.

    Thank you Doogie.
