The LFC's current champion is Roxy 'Roundhouse' Michaels. Roxy is a lingerie model from Chicago, Illinois who says she learned how to fight on the streets and signed-up for martial arts to stay out of trouble. She had competed in MMA on the East Coast before joining the LFC and says people underestimate her at their own peril. Somewhere along the line, she developed nerves of steel, Roxy never panics in the ring and displays a composure that is unsettling to her opponents. Her answer for any onslaught from a competitor is to stay calm long enough to figure out what her next move will be. Roxy bolsters her wrestling by using a well-developed, lethal kicking game that can strike at any moment and chop down her foes.
An outstanding teammate, Roxy gamely won the title for the pink team in a battle of wills. Her all out effort serves as a template for fighters looking to see what it takes to have their arm raised triumphantly in a flawless execution on her way to the top. Roxy has an inspirational cage presence that younger athletes, regardless of the sport, need to emulate in one way or another to find their own success.
