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.

Roxanne Modafferi was a guest on my show last fall (2008). The episode in question is: The Invisible Web Episode 21 (0302) – Fighting 63 in Japan. Tonight she will be facing one of the premiere female fighters in the world, Merloes Coenen on the StrikeForce Fedor vs Rogers undercard. Her fight may or may not be televised due to time constraints. In 2007 , Roxy beat Merloes to win the K-Grace Tournament, in Japan. At that time many consider Merloes to be the “female Rickson Gracie” due to her numerous tournament wins. We here at the Invizible Web (and MMA-Blitz) wish Roxy a good fight and know she will kick Merloes’ ass again.

On this episode of the Invisible Web I interview Roxanne Modafferi, who is one of the headliners for the inaugural GCM VALKYRIE MMA show on Saturday, at Tokyo’s Differ Ariake (doors open 1:00 PM Tokyo and 2:00 is bell time). We discuss the etymological origins of her family name, her mini feud with Megumi Yabushita, training with the Wajyutsu Keishukai Network (Caol Uno and Yushin THUNDA Okami), anime, and more. And as a bonus I read Time and the Gods by Lord Dunsany.
UPDATE: Roxanne won the decision in her fight today at the inaugural VALKYRIE show against Chisa Yonezawa. Congratulations~!!
