The Life and Times of a Foreigner Fighting in Japan Part 2: Roxanne Modafferi


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.

Not so, as Roxy's life in Japan is as exciting as it is kinetic. Join Sherdog.com's Tony Loiseleur for an exclusive exploration of Modafferi as she prepares for her biggest challenge yet in Strikeforce 135-pound champion Sarah Kaufman. The pair square off on Friday’s Showtime-televised Strikeforce “Challengers 9” show.
