Rizin gonna Rizin. Women's Heavyweight Gabi Garcia was scheduled to fight 53 year old Shinobu Kandori at Rizin's New Year event in Saitama, Japan... while that sentence is ridiculous enough, add in the fact that Gabi ended up missing weight by 28 pounds making her 70 pounds heavier than her opponent.
I don't know what Rizin and Gabi Garcia have against elderly folks, but maybe it's time to stop choosing opponents out of the nursing home.
The only thing more ridiculous than weighing in 28 pounds heavy to fight a woman 21 years her elder is the fact that (at the time of publishing) THE FIGHT STILL HASN'T BEEN CALLED OFF! No one is a bigger fan of absurdity in MMA than I am, but this is bordering on torture. They're gonna let this granny step in and get pieced up by a 237 pound killer. I hope Shinobu Kandori makes a hell of an agreement with the MMA Gods before this fight kicks off, because I don't particularly want to watch somebody's grandmother go straight from the ring to the morgue.
