#TUF27Finale results: Roxanne Modafferi defeats Barb Honchak via second-round TKO

Tonight at the TUF 27 Finale show in Las Vegas, two Invicta veterans went battle for the second time as former Invicta FC flyweight champion Barb Honchak faced MMA’s “Happy Warrior” Roxanne Modafferi. 

RECAP: A super exciting and telling match-up in the flyweight division here— a rematch from seven years ago! Roxy with the unorthodox movement to start while Barb keeping both hands high. Honchak looks to be landing solid and accurate combinations. Midway through the round, Roxy secures a beautiful double leg and ends up in half guard. Roxy spends the remainder of the round trying to work some elbows from top position. Second round and Barb immediately throwing the combos. She grabs a body lock on Roxy and goes for a trip takedown but Modafferi reverses it and ends up in full mount. Honchak fights back to regain guard however Roxy is efficient with her ground and pound. She unloads with elbows until the referee steps in to stop the contest!

  1. Although Roxanne probably would have prevailed and we didn’t see much protest from Barb, that looked like an early stoppage to me. Most of Roxanne’s blows in the G&P were landing on Barb’s gloves.
