Roxy Modafferi is getting better at smack talking

If Roxanne Modafferi had nuts, we here at Fightlinker would be hugging all over them. She’s by far our favorite female fighter, and not because she hangs out here … in fact, she only came around to find out who the hell was stalking her. And once she realized we weren’t likely to murder her and wear her skin ‘Silence of the Lambs’ style, she has stuck around, which makes her even cooler.

The big news coming up with Roxy is that she’s fighting stateside on April 3rd for Fatal Femmes Fighting … Los Angeles to be specific. So if you’re around there, I advise you go and check that shit out. If you’ve never seen Roxy fight, here’s a highlight video for yo’ face.

Anyways, I’d just like to point out a nice area of improvement in Roxy’s game: she’s finally getting the hang of talking some smack. She tried issuing a youtube challenge to Laura D’Auguste which just wasn’t angry enough … it needed more “You suck” and “If you’re woman enough to face me again I’ll rip your head off and shit down your throat”. But in this latest interview with Fighthype she actually does a pretty good job of laying down the fundamentals:

  • Saying she ain’t giving up the belt easy
  • Predicting a ground and pound KO finish
  • Calling her opponent ‘underdeveloped’

While there’s still room for improvement, I just wanted to take the time to applaud Roxy for a good job in hyping up her fight. While she’s no Frank Shamrock, she’s finally displaying some cockiness that reflects her skills.

    kick some ass roxy

  • Roxy says:

    “Calling her opponent ‘underdeveloped’” ooops, haha, didn’t realize how that sounded.

    Unintentional smack talk! YES. No, really, thanks. I’m trying here. :) And thanks for stalking- now I know you wonderful jackals!

    I’m thinking about whether or not I should do weigh-ins with or without a T shirt….you have no idea how much mental energy I’m wasting over that issue.


    Maybe if I weigh-in in a sports bra, more promotions will want me. How sad is that? But am I going against my image? omg the inner conflict!

    But first, the fundamentals: Beat up Porto. The pressure is on.

  • x5BoltMainx says:

    You should do a weigh-in wearing a FL shirt, if you haven’t done so. You can also say you want to thank all of the FL members for their support in your victory speech. Either way, Ryan would probably bust a nutt 😀

    How do you fight if you’re not wearing glasses? I can’t imagine fighting in contacts because they can pop out.

  • Captain says:

    Thumbs down to the sport bra. Go bikini or don’t go at all.

    Whoop some ass, Roxy.

  • Omomatta says:

    Kick some ass sea bass!

  • toolverine says:

    I was thinking about flying down to LA to check this fight and then my car got stolen this week, so there’s no way now. Maybe next time.

  • kentyman says:

    Nothing wrong with wearing a sports bra. It’s not like it’s a wet t-shirt… wait, there’s an idea!

    Seriously though, I say Fightlinker t-shirt or no t-shirt at all.

  • kentyman says:

    Yes, thank you. I’d like to fight in EliteXC and be televised. There are women with less experience out there getting more attention. If promotions want the best, they should be willing to fly me in from Japan.

    I’m really glad you said this, Roxy. That’s the only way changes are gonna be made.

    I’m calling Roxy, Round 2, Poundo.

  • Lifer says:

  • RoB says:

  • Lifer says:

    i voted obviously. i tied it up. i leave it to the other jackals to put her over the top! i dont see any benefit to her winning this poll but whatever 😀

  • HexRei says:

    Yay roxy! my new geek crush.

  • x5BoltMainx says:

    I voted, but she still is only up by 5 votes. So c’mon people, get off your ass & vote!! 😛

    Hey, does anyone know if chicks can hit the boobies?

  • i signed up for Fightliner says:

    Voted(you have double the votes of the next person),Sports Bra or Godzilla suit your choice.

  • Atom says:

    I’ve always wondered about the legality of a breast-bruiser as well. Roxy- any insight?

  • kentyman says:

    And what about the cun– Er, “the low blow”?

  • Captain says:

    It’s now 16 – 7. You should totally ask for a bonus based on your popularity.

  • Roxy says:


    Captain: I’m too shy to wear a bikini.

    x5BoltMainx: I used to wear contacts, and yes, they popped out in the later rounds. That didn’t bother me until one actually BROKE and half wouldn’t come out. I damanged the CORNEA of my eye trying to. I haven’t worn them since.

    toolverine: Clearly your logic is lacking. People can’t steal your airplane! :) (just kidding, I’m so sorry!)

    IS there a fighterlinker T shirt? I’ve been asking about it…!

    re: boobies, there is no point to striking them. It doesn’t hurt, and it does no damage. regarding the other thing, we never really get hit there anyway.
