Friday’s stand-up only Shoot Boxing fight between Gabi Garcia and Megumi Yabushita ended in a No Contest, following an accidental soccer kick from Gabi Garcia in the first round. (Scroll down to watch the full fight).
Garcia (4-0-0 in MMA) is currently the number one heavyweight fighter in the world when it comes to MMA competition. Since making her professional debut back in 2015, she’s finished the likes of Lei’D Tapa, Anna Maliukova and Destanie Yarbrough. She was a 10x BJJ World Champion prior to making the move to MMA. At 6’2 and well over 200-pounds, the 31-year-old believes she is the baddest woman on the planet.
Her opponent, Yabushita (19-23-0 IN MMA), is a veteran of combat sports who competes in the flyweight and bantamweight divisions. She is currently on a seven-fight losing streak in MMA competition.
Garcia will compete again later this month, this time she will return to MMA, the sport she is most known for, when she battles Oksana Gagloeva in an eagerly anticipated heavyweight contest at RIZIN Fighting Federation 6 on 30th July.
