Gabi Garcia Misses Weight For Latest Bout


Rizin FF 8 takes place Friday at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan – near Tokyo.

Featuring on the event is a bout between behemoth of women’s MMA Gabi Garcia (4-0) and 53-year-old, retired pro wrestler Shinobu Kandori (4-1, last fought MMA 17 years ago).

This was scheduled to be an open weight bout with a weight limit of 209 pounds. Kandori weighed in at a modest 162.25 lbs, Garcia tipped the scales at an astonishing 237lbs; a full 28lbs over the limit. According to reports, Kandori screamed at Garcia then stormed off.

Now even though Rizin FF head, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, came on stage and said “Competition-wise, we cannot make this happen.”

This circus bout hasn’t officially been called off,  if it does go ahead, however, Garcia will have nearly a 75lbs weight advantage.

Lambs and slaughter come to anyone’s mind?
