Posted by invizweb on January 31, 2010

On January 30, 2010, former guest of the show, Roxanne Modafferi added another win to her record.  A few weeks back, the King of the Cage (C),  American Mixed Martial Arts promotion decided to begin their Asian expansion holding an event they would entitle “Toryumon” at the Okinawa Convention Center in Okinawa,  the accredited birthplace of Karate.  This reporter does not know if Ultimo Dragon’s copyright extends to the Ryuku Islands or if was expired to begin with.  Thus they contacted Roxanne, who recently fought StrikeForce W omen’s Lightweight Title contender Merloes Coenen (!7-4-0) in November 2009 in lL at the “StrikeForce:  Fedor vs Rogers” event, to fight Molly Helsel (8-8-1).  After some striking exchanges, the fight ended at 3:18 of Round 2 when Roxanne applied an inescapable Rear Naked Choke.
