Gabi Garcia fought twice in July, and both fights ended in no contests.
The Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace, who landed a vicious illegal soccer kick in a muay thai fight earlier this month in Japan, returned to the MMA ring at Sunday’s RIZIN card at the Saitama Super Arena to face Oksana Gagloeva.
A former boxing heavyweight, Gagloeva was making her debut in MMA against the undefeated Garcia (4-0), but the bout only lasted 16 seconds. In the first exchange, Garcia accidentally poked her opponent in the eye, and she couldn’t continue.
