Roxanne Modafferi Received $100 From Fan After UFC 246 Victory

Roxanne Modafferi defeated Maycee Barber by unanimous decision on the preliminary card of UFC 246.

The victory didn’t come without its rewards, as Modafferi says she received $100 from a fan who bet on her to beat Barber.

“One of my fans messaged me on social media that he bet $1,000 on me. So, cool. Enjoy that,” she told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto (via Milan Ordonez of Bloody Elbow). “One of my fans actually PayPal-ed me $100 after I won, so that’s pretty cool. I have the best fans.”

Modafferi was considered the underdog in the bout against Barber, despite the fact that Modafferi had a 30 fight experience edge over the youthful Barber.

Outside of becoming a UFC champion, another goal Modafferi has is to show people what a good mixed martial artists is.

“It’s cool. I want to really show what a good martial artist should be like,” she said. “I think that’s one of my callings. Teach kids jiu-jitsu, be a good martial artist, show that you don’t have to be angry and like ‘Your mama, blah blah blah’ in order to be a good fighter and turn it on the Octagon. So, I get the job done.”

There is no word yet on what is next for Modafferi, who has won three of six in her second stint with the UFC.
