At UFC 246 on Saturday, WMMA pioneer Roxanne Modafferi fights undefeated Maycee Barber, who was five years old when "The Happy Warrior" started fighting.

During a recent interview, Modafferi talked about the fight.

“That’s really what I need,” said Modafferi, as transcribed by Danny Segura for MMA Junkie. “Let’s be honest, I’m not exactly scary. I mean, I have a lot of experience, but you know, I’m not frightening, so these people like Antonina Shevchenko, Maycee Barber, who kind of explode on the scene and TKO people, people watch them. So I’m glad to have that kind of opponent so I can get a little notice, too.”

“I’m just excited to fight somebody new; I’ve rematched so many people, I’m glad I’m not rematching anybody. I think Maycee is a good fight for me. She has a lot of hype behind her, so therefore I’m kind of getting a little hype. So yeah, I have a lot of techniques to show, so that’s really more of my motivation, showing my skills.”

“I’m thinking that they want her to climb the ranks and fight somebody in the top 10, and I’m somebody in the top 10 to fight. I’m coming off a loss, but that’s fine, that’s cool. I’ll derail her hype train, nicely.”

Roxy by Imanari Roll heel hook. 
 

Seriously she should abandon conventional fight structure and go full Ryan Hall/Shinya Aoki. She must have some deep grappling after all that time in Japan, time to pull out the really weird upside down shit, these wrestle boxers won’t know what hit them.

She exemplifies the best in professionalism and sportsmanship. She already spends a lot of time training kids, so I have no doubt she has a great future in coaching if that's what would interest her once she puts down the gloves.

Let's be honest..she is NOT a fight for Barber. NAGA Champions do not make UFC fighters.

I'm hoping that Roxy's experience will come through and win this for her.

This is going to be a very one sided beating unfortunately.

I mean she's gonna smash her no doubt, but Maycee might keep it close early.

 

War Rox

Unfortunately roxy will be ran over, not a good match up. If she does pull out a win I hope she does this victory dance

This was the first time I had seen Barber fight. The only thing that was impressive was her toughness. Roxi dominated her in every aspect of the fight.
