Gladiator Fight Team’s Veronica Futina absolutely rips into Gabi Garcia, vows to “tear her apart” if they ever meet

Gladiator Fight Team’s Veronica Futina is not a fan of RIZIN heavyweight star Gabi Garcia.

Heavyweight prospect Veronica Futina believes she has what it takes to defeat Gabi Garcia.

Russia’s Futina believes Gabi Garcia boxing skills are similar to how a child would strike. She vows to “tear her apart” if the two ever meet.

Gabi has the boxing skills of a child. I am also not impressed with the skills of her previous opponents. Even my neighbours want me to give her a slapping. If me and Gabi ever cross paths, I will tear her apart.” Futina told Rize Up! Podcast.

She is not interesting for me as fighter. I don`t care but she is popular and I want to take away her Glory.” she continued.

Futina is looking to sign with RIZIN Fighting Federation, much like teammates and fellow heavyweight competitors, Anna Maliukova and Oxana Gagloeva. The 31-year-old’s list of accolades in combat sports are endless. She is a 2x world champion in hand-to-hand fighting, 4x champion in Russian hand-to-hand fighting, 2x European champion in hand-to-hand fighting and a champion in Russian Judo.

Fight fans, is Veronica Futina vs Gabi Garcia the next fight to make? Who do you think would win? Let us know in the comments section below.



  1. And zero MMA fights under her belt. Let’s hear the talk after having a MMA fight first. The wrestling, the clinching, the takedowns, the kicks, the elbows, and the submissions are all things she has yet to experience in a real MMA fight.

    1. Alas, given Gabi’s competition, not sure how much experience Gabi can claim in the cage. Gabi’s biggest challenge appears to simply be making weight. Pretty sad in a HW division.

      1. Gabi Garcia’s biggest problem isn’t making weight for Heavyweight, it was that stupid weight of 209 pounds she agreed to. Heavyweight limit is 265 pounds and Gabi Garcia hasn’t had a problem making that weight. One of Gabi Garcia’s biggest problem seems to be Rizin FF. After starting out having Gabi Garcia fighting in respectable matchups against Lei’D Tapa and Destanie Yarborough, out of nowhere Rizin FF decision makers started throwing Gabi Garcia in Freakshow matchups. What happened? Did the Japanese Mafia get involved again like it did with Pride FC?
