Roxanne Modafferi’s Enthusiasm Is Freaking Infectious

Want to know how pumped up Roxanne Modafferi is about fighting on Saturday night’s Strikeforce event in Chicago?  She’s so jazzed that she’s even excited about meeting Fanhouse’s Ariel Helwani.  Can you believe it?  In all fairness, she does seem to be pretty excitable in general, almost to the point of being what a twelve-year-old might label a "spazz."  But damned if seeing someone so excited about her fight doesn’t make you legitimately excited about it too.  This childlike enthusiasm of hers is actually a very effective self-promotional tool.  Who knows what Marloes Coenen is up to right now, but she’s not posting videos of herself breathlessly describing video games, so eff her, right?

Modafferi’s chances of having her fight make the CBS broadcast seem pretty decent considering that "The Last Gypsy" probably won’t need very long to put away Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, and between them Antonio Silva and Fabricio Werdum only have a handful of fights that have gone the distance.  We sure hope she gets on TV, although you can’t help but worry that the excitement might be too much for her.  If she gets that worked up about talking to Helwani, an appearance on CBS might make her head explode.

For those of you unfamiliar with Modafferi’s work, a video primer is after the jump.

Nice work here by the #1 Modafferi fan boys over at Fightlinker.  They even sell t-shirts to help support her lavish lifestyle in Japan, if you’re interested.

What?  Just a woman wearing a Santa hat and eating a grasshopper.  No big deal.

Marloes cohens pretty hot for the "like to watch hot chicks fight" guys. shes pretty cool too but i like Roxy shes kinda nerdy and awesome in her blogs and interviews its hard not to like her and shes a good fighter.

Make all the crude little comments you like, but Modafferi is exactly the kind of person I want representing MMA.

Not only is she coherent, she's got a strong vocabulary and uses proper grammar. She also seems like a nice person and is apparently one hell of a fighter.

LOL@ Soda Popinsksi...nice reference. Does anyone else think she looks like she's about 12 yrs. old too?

"I loved you since I knew ya.....I wouldnt talk down to ya. cause youd probably whoop my ass"

I hope she wins just to hear her post-fight interview.

Her freakin' chin makes my goddamn balls ache.

Damn you Fred! I was going to type up something about her and the Barncat should get together. Their offspring would probably be some tall, lanky, nerdy ass kickers

Somebody slip her phone number into the hot hairy palm of Tamdan McCrory. Let the sounds of awkward nerd sex hang in the night sky and act as a soothing lullaby in these trouble times.

Roxy posts all the time at Fightlinker, she is actually cool as hell. I think its ridiculous that people don't want to watch women's fighting because they don't look like Gina. War Roxy!
Daoulas- November 5, 2009 at 10:39 am
holy shit i just watched her hl video this girl has scraps, she comes out swinging like shes tryin to take heads off. i like her lots. booya womans mma
Sakuraba3900- November 5, 2009 at 10:25 am
goddamnit... why must my other post be under review... i had a good find.
Daoulas- November 5, 2009 at 10:24 am
I like her attitude a lot. I dont think she could hang with cyborg because I am pretty sure Cyborg is a man. Otherwise you guys need to be easier on these females mannnn. They cant all be gina carano. I get boners just saying her name let alone looking at her. Most female fighters are not going to be models.
Embrace this nerdy looking girl for the love of MMA. She is a fan and loves the sport and I bet she could lay an asswoopin down on some of the guys that visit this site and read my words.

Anyway keep on keepin on if you are reading this Roxanne I will be rooting for you baby. Kick some ass

I would shit my pants too if I ever met Ariel! Of course, that would mean that I had to somehow develope gills...I remember her adventures with Sabastian and Flounder, as well as that perverted Prince with the hard-on. I brush my hair with a dinglehopper every fuckin day!

What? Wrong Ariel?

"Oh my gawd, Ariel! Mom is gonna be so happy you're interviewing me!"

If Harry Potter's cousin is "nerdy", then where does Harry stand in the social order of things?
Smitty, you muggle.

Besides, she looks like Ariel Helwani's sister.

War ROXY!!!

support Roxy go buy a shirt
K.E.G.- November 5, 2009 at 9:24 am
She's alright, call me spoiled but if there not as hot as gina i don't want to see them fight. There is enough mediocre dudes that fight that can actually hit hard enough to knock somebody out. Woman's MMA just doesn't appeal to me.

I was wondering what happened to Luke Cummo, I hope he wins on sat.
Smitty- November 5, 2009 at 9:22 am
Did you see the throat muscles on that........person??? I demand a gender test!!!! That looks like Harry Potters nerdy male cousin.
