At this rate, Gabi Garcia’s closest competition would be her training partner, Cris Cyborg, who is 90 pounds lighter than her. It’s not Garcia’s fault either. She’s 235 pounds and shredded. There aren’t many women near that weight who actually have skill. So, once again, in another shocker, Gabi Garcia submitted an opponent who she outweighed by 45 pounds.
Veronika Futina was billed as a ‘striker’ and actually swarmed Garcia early. However, size does matter and Garcia got the fight to the mat in about one minute. Once there, Futina had no answers and Garcia finished the fight by rear naked choke.

Garcia now moves to 5-0-1 in her MMA career. However, pickings are slim for her next opponent.
