It's been 48 hours since UFC 129: St. Pierre vs. Shields, and its time for us all to close our proverbial jaws, and get back on the MMA bandwagon. There's a blank canvas for the week until Bellator 43 kicks off this weekend, and we at Gals Guide to MMA have the perfect paint to brighten up that picture- Miss Roxanne Modafferi!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Roxy, you've been sorely missing out. Modafferi has been a stalwart of the female 135 pound division for years, where she has battled the best of the best both at 135 and 145 pounds. A few names on her resume include Sarah Kaufman, Marloes Coenen, Megumi Yabushita, Tara LaRosa,Jennifer Howe, Shayna Baszler. So on. And so forth. Walking around under the 135 lbs limit, you could consider her the female equivalent of BJ Penn.
Roxy just recently made her permanent (well...maybe. This is Roxanne Modafferi after all) move to 125 pounds and met consensus top 5 Rosi Sexton in a fantastic war! Which isn't surprising. Any fight with Roxy is going to be a war. The girl always brings it for every minute of every round.
Roxy was kind enough to take time out of her busy day teaching English in Japan (my dream and future job) and being an all around bottle of hilarity in order to answer a few questions! You can check out the interview in its entirety over at
