  1. Seriously, who is exactly surprised by Gabi Garcia over powering her opponent by Frankenstein-ing her way in to close the distance, get a take down and get a win by submission? Any MMA fan predicted this result.

    1. What I did not expect was to see Gabi out strike Barbara. Barbara’s few jabs seemed effective as did her overhand right. Not sure why she didn’t use them more often, and really mystified why she didn’t kick the heck out of Gabi’s legs. I’m not sure if I recall seeing any kicks. Needed to quickly get in and out, even if it meant running around the cage some. For anyone interested, here’s the entire fight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85vbowbxKrw

      1. too much size and strength difference to overcome ! Not surprised one bit ! Barb usually fights at 185, I believe, and she looks like she could fight smaller than that !

  2. Impressive pro debut for Justyna Zofia Haba.

    Road and/or RIZIN need to arrange an AW or SAW fight between Ham and Hamasaki. Or Invicta and RIZIN a Hamasaki/Frey rematch.
