Roxy’s Budo unable to overcome SRC’s doctors

And now, for a positive word about Japanese MMA organizations that do it right, courtesy of MMA Rising.

Fightlinker’s favorite fighter, Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi, was slated to begin her comeback to the top of the bantamweight division against Hitomi “Girlfight Monster” Akano.  Unfortunately, both came out to the ring to pose for photos, as the bout was cancelled before it began due to Roxy’s stint in the hospital the night before with a stomach illness.  The pre-fight medical examination found Roxy unable to compete, and the bout was mercifully axed before it happened.

A couple of things to draw from this.  First of all, if I have a stomach bug so bad I have to check into the hospital, I’m not going to fucking school the next day, let alone letting someone hit me and throw me around.  The Happy Warrior lived up to her nickname by even showing up, and I can’t wait to see her get back into the cage (if you’re reading this, Roxy, I think it’s about time for you to do another website chat).  Second, bravo to Sengoku Raiden Championship (it still makes me smirk when I type that out) for not allowing the bout to happen.  I’m used to reading about how PRIDE fighters were dabbing their syringe holes with cotton balls on their way to the ring – I’m still skeptical about a promotion doing drug testing in house, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t a step in the right direction.

    pfftt….. I bet if it was Tito Ortiz pulling this shit, you’d be throwing a bitch fit right now calling him a pussy and shit. What kind of ass kissing, bias journalism is this shit?

  • subo says:

    I’m actually really, really careful about calling fighters “pussies”, because I’m not some Billy Badass blogger that talks shit about people that fight for a living. Oh, and this site will forever be biased towards Roxy, so get the fuck over it or get the fuck out.

    does fightlinker count as journalism? GTFO.

    “so get the fuck over it or get the fuck out.”

    I’m glad to see that Fightlinker is doing so well that the writers can actually tell the readers to get lost and never come back!

    Your attitude stinks, and it shows in every piece you write.

    I wanted to fight soooo bad….but I could barely walk straight. I went to the hospital to get an IV at 7 AM the morning of the fight…. @[email protected] It was the worst time EVER to get sick.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Sorry to hear it Rox. I hope you get a chance to fight healthy as soon as possible!

  • subo says:

    “Your attitude stinks”

    Sorry, Dad. I’ll never do that with the car again, I promise. If you have a star, I have to treat you with a modicum of respect, but until you buy one/write for us/are as awesome as Roxy/are worth any kind of shit, then deal with my attitude or don’t. Nobody makes you be here.

    Roxy – That’s just shitty timing. You’re hardcore as hell for even trying. Keep us updated and we’ll keep lavishing praise on you no matter what random people think!

    Hey co-pilot!

    One: You are a dickhead.

    Two: When used as an adjective, it’s ‘biased’. ‘Bias’ is a noun.

    Three: You are a dickhead.

  • Roxy says:

    Let’s not fight over stuff like this ^^; Make sure you take lots of vitamins, people!

  • iamphoenix says:

    NO! your honor must be defended! BLAHR BLAHR BLOO BLOGSHHARRR!!!!

    “If you have a star, I have to treat you with a modicum of respect …”

    Funny you should mention it, because I used to have one but decided not to get a new one, since the site has a taken a turn for the worse, for example by letting you write here.
