MMA Junkie just confirmed Roxanne Modafferi vs Hitomi Akano on December 30th @ Sengoku Soul of Fight. You may remember Akano from her time in Strikeforce where she got whupped by Cris Cyborg. A more happy memory was when she was the only person to actually finish an opponent during Strikeforce’s dumb 6-minute fights tournament – she finished Carina Damm by armbar before losing via decision to Miesha Tate in the finals. No word yet on special rules or round times – let’s all pray to Santa Claus for 3x5min + no grappling restrictions!
As for how we can watch it, the rumor is HDNet will be covering 9 hours of the event (yeah, it’s a huge 30-fight festival). Hopefully Roxy’s fight will be part of that block.
