Heavyweight monster Gabi Garcia is back, battles Veronika Futina at the ROAD FC 47 event on May 12

Heavyweight competitors Gabi Garcia and Veronika Futina will collide in an openweight bout at the ROAD FC 47 event on May 12.

Gabi Garcia is a multiple-time BJJ world champion.

Garcia (4-0, 1 NC) is a multiple-time BJJ world champion who made the transition to MMA in late 2015. The 32-year-old Brazilian has been cleaning out the women of her division, having successfully finished the likes of Lei’D Tapa, Anna Maliukova and Destanie Yarbrough. However, last year she was unable to fight due to a series of no contests and failures to make weight.

Futina (0-0) trains at the Gladiator Fight Team along with fellow heavyweight competitors and former Gabi Garcia opponents, 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.

  1. Thank goodness Gabi Garcia is taking a fight outside of what became a inexplicably circus show with Rizin FF. Seriously, what was up with the inexplicable reasons for Rizin FF decision makers to start matching Gabi Garcia up with senior citizens?
