Gabi Garcia was set to face pro wrestler, Lei’d Tapa, in her MMA debut on the second day of Rizin.
The BJJ black belt did was dropped early on in the first round, but was able to recover. Tapa, who looked considerably smaller, didn’t want to go into Gabi’s world. After some horrible striking, Gabi was landed a flailing back fist that dropped Tapa. After a few punches on the ground, the ref stepped in to stop the fight.
Now that we got this fight out of the, lets hope Gabi doesn’t fight again. Unless she’s given opponents who know nothing about fighting, she will get mauled, 216lb or not.
