Roxanne Modafferi is a Ninja........Shhhhhh....+New Ninja Interview!
Roxanne Modafferi is trying something new for fight on February 26th, she will be fighting at 125 lbs for the first time in her MMA career (15-6). Modafferi will face Rosi Sexton (11-2) another celebrated veteran of MMA at Cage Warriors 40 in London on February 26th. Modafferi, an American who lives and works in Japan, usually can be seen fighting at 135lbs and she is a favorite among fans for her easy going and approachable nature. Roxanne has a multi-faceted fight style, with a mix of Judo, Kenpo Karate, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Ninjitsu in her arsenal.
In an interview with Brit MMA.Co.UK she was asked," if she could sum up in a few words what Sexton should expect come fight night, what would they be". Modafferi replied,“Rosi should expect Ninjaness,”
In an attempt to throw Roxanne off her ninja ways Rosi Sexton has thrown some mental warfare Modafferi's way. Since this is Roxanne's first time fighting at 125 (she usually fights at 135lbs) she had had to diet to make sure she makes weight. Sexton has been posting pictures of fattening and sugary foods to Roxanne's facebook page (jokingly of course). Nicely played Rosi! This is a testament to how most female fighters take their fighting very seriously, but that is where they leave it, in the cage.
Modafferi has made two Top-Secret videos recently showcasing some of her super-ninja techniques that she will look to employ in her fight against Sexton. But, please be careful to keep these to yourself...Roxy would like to keep Rosi Sexton from knowing....and this post will self destruct 30 seconds....not really. PLUS check out the new interview below!
Roxanne recently did an interview with REAL ninja's. Check this out...It may be one of the greatest interviews ever!!!
