After Gabi Garcia missed weight by a huge 26 pounds for a 209.4lbs agreed upon fight with 53 year old Shinobu Kandori there was some on and off speculation about the fight actually going ahead. Shinobu very clearly expressed her disappointment at the weigh in’s about Gabi’s weight miss.
Just a short while ago though it was officially announced that the fight would not go ahead and had been scrapped. Rizin president Nobuyuki Sakakibara confirmed this.
We say ‘good thinking’.
Wonder if this all bringing a good amount of publicity to Rizin and keeping it very well alive…but then again,they seem to strive on this kind of publicity.
