Jazzy Gabert has hit out at fellow heavyweight contender Gabi Garcia in a series of social media posts.
Garcia (4-0, 1 NC) will be facing 53-year-old Shinobu Kandori at the upcoming RIZIN Fighting Federation event on December 29. The announcement has received heavy criticism from fans on social media who believe the fight is a complete mismatch. Garcia recently responded by revealing she does not choose her opponents and is under a strict contract in which she must accept what is given to her. She says she wants “hard fights” in future and named four heavyweight fighters who she hopes to fight in 2018.
Gabert (1-1) does not believe Garcia’s claims and feels as though she is simply looking for sympathy. She refers to the Brazilian as a “pathetic person” and says she is a “joke” and a “disgrace” to the sport of MMA.
“Now she is looking for sympathy! Wasn’t she perfectly fine with the easy money fight? And as I remember a recent interview of GG, she said she wanna try wwe, but continues mocking me and my sport… Gabi is a JOKE! She wouldn’t last a minute in the wrestling ring.” Gabert said.
“My wish for 2018 is to stop this nonsense and not hear any word of this pathetic person anymore! Disgrace to the beautiful sport of MMA!” she continued.
