There is a very real possibility that Gabi Garcia With Hands may be MMA’s next great mythological fighter. The thing about Garci, sicne she is pretty much MMA’s only female heavyweight, people are going to come for her crown.
Enter Bellator 145 pound champion Juila Budd. Running out of contenders that weight close to her, Budd is shooting her shot with Garcia. And Why not? Bellator and Rizin have proven that they can work together.
Budd recently called out Garcia, again, after another impressive win earlier in the month. Now Garcia has responded and it’s all just great.
Our friends over at MMA Fighting with the money quotes.
“She’s talking about the size difference, saying that I’m a challenge for her, but no, it’s a challenge for me. She’s undefeated since 2011, has way more experience than me. I didn’t even think about fighting MMA back in 2011. She’s faced great names in the sport, so fighting her is a big challenge for me.”
“My strikes are definitely heavier than hers, and I’d have an advantage if I can take her to the ground” —, but a disadvantage in terms of speed — “I’ve trained a lot with Cris (Cyborg) and when I throw a five-strike combo she responds with a 15-strike combo, so she’ll move way faster than me.
“I don’t think she has punching power to knock me out,” Garcia said. “I’m not scared of her. I chose to be a fighter so I really want to fight her. She’s being very respectful in her callout, but she wants to make he name against me and that won’t happen. She made a mistake by asking for this fight. She thinks it’s gonna be easy. If I land a punch, I think she goes down.”
A Gabi Garcia versus Julia Budd fight would be the rare match-up that is a freak and a super fight.
Please Fight Gods, satisfy both our freak and super craving all in one beautiful JMMA sitting.
