Massachusetts’ Roxanne Modafferi is a long way from home.

As one of the few Western mixed martial artists living, training, and fighting exclusively out of Japan over the past five years, one would think that a homesick Roxy would be ready to return home by now.

The pair square off on Friday’s Showtime-televised Strikeforce “Challengers 9” show.
