Roxy Wins!

Roxy Modafferi def. Tara Larosa (split decision)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*UPDATE* The Sherdog write-up. WAR ROXY!

The card also saw one of the country’s most accomplished female fighters, Tara LaRosa, drop a spirited split decision to Strikeforce veteran Roxanne Modafferi in a 130-pound catch-weight fight.

Modafferi outstruck LaRosa and fended off the takedown well in the first two rounds, including a superman punch that dropped the former BodogFight champion. LaRosa came on stronger in the third, but was nearly caught in a triangle choke. With the win, Modafferi avenged a 2006 decision loss to LaRosa.

“Now we’re even,” a smiling Modafferi said.
