    While many "characters" on TUF have been tolerable (if that), Roxanne was the show's most likable fighter and it is not even close.

    Kelvin was much more likable, as was Chiesa, and Sicilia (sp?)

    She is very likable. I felt for her getting finished like that and likely ending her UFC shot. Maybe she fights in the finale but other than shooting for submissions I thought she looked overmatched

    I find it irritating that she tries to speak English like she has a Japanese accent.

    If you live somewhere for a decade, you will pick up speech mannerisms from there.

    Um, no, she really doesn't. But it wouldn't shock me after living in a foreign country for so long if she picked up certain aspects of the way they talked. My wife and I lived in Canada for nearly 4 years for college and when we came home we apparently spoke with a weird Canadian accent.

    So far, Roxy and Cory are my two favorite personalities in the house. Even though she looked terrible, I felt bad when she lost. I think because of her popularity the UFC will probably give her another shot to get in.

    Thanks for that tips..............I get that. She seems to force it though and obviously is obsessed with Japanese culture. Maybe cause everything is easier there including competition.

    Chiesa+Sicilia, Brookins, Lauzon ("nerdy internet kid"), AMIR SADOLLAH<<<<, Bader came off really well (was patient with Junie Browning somehow), Ross Pearson, Big Baby, Abe Wagner, a lot of the TUF 10 Heavyweights were gentle giants (probably why it sucked), Court McGee was a great guy, most of the TUF 11 guys were cool actually, Al, Kelvin...that's all I got right now.

    Roxanne ranks top 5 most likeable i'd say. But Chiesa, Brookins, Sadollah are locks for the top 3.

    Or maybe she's just an old fighter? All these Pride guys coming over and losing, fuck Japan. She's been in WMMA for 10 years. Until 4 years ago, the basically was no WMMA outside of Japan. So what the fuck are you talking about?

    Roxanne has fought some of the best WMMA fighters out there..she has even defeated Marloes Coenen and Tara LaRosa. The japanese girls she fought arent slouches either.

    I havent watched any of this TUF but i've always liked Roxanne. She is so old school that it can be argued that she's probably out of her prime by now.

    Roxanne pretty much retired Jennifer Howe. Beat her two times..only two losses of Howe's career.
