Japan is known for their freak shows, remember Bob Sapp? Gabi Garcia is the new Bob Sapp, well, with zero charisma. I guess Gacia’s only link to Sapp would be that they’re massive and love fighting in Japan.
Gabi Garcia made her Shootboxing debut earlier today and the fight ended in a ‘no contest’ due to Garcia landed an illegal soccer kick on Megumi Yabushita. The 45-year-old Yabushita was considerably smaller. she normally fights at 135lb, Garcia’s leg weighs about 135lb.
As far as Shootingboxing rules go (I literally just found out this event existed), here’s what’s allowed: punches, elbows, knees, kicks, standing throws, and standing submissions.
Garcia will return to action on July 30, taking on Oksana Gagloeva under the RIZIN banner in an MMA fight.
