Gabi Garcia’s Weight Struggles
Garcia wrote underneath the post that the image is her goal for 2020. Although she didn’t specify, one could assume that she meant the image on the right. Nonetheless, the weight that Garcia was in each image was never disclosed. But, if she’s searching to slim down, it could very well be to prevent missing weight in the future.
Most of the time, Gabi’s athletic achievements have come from competitions with absolute or open weight classes. During her last bout, she took on Barbara Nepomuceno and weighed in at 226lbs. During the competition, she easily handled her opponent and finished her with an Americana.
Also, Garcia was on the wrong end of one of the biggest weight misses in MMA history. In a match scheduled for the 209lb mark, she missed weight by 28lbs against Shinobu Kandori. Although the match never happened, it was the second time she was scheduled to face Kandori.
Garcia must have a plan for what she would like to do with the weight loss. A wild guess would assume that it would be for some sort of competition. However, maybe she just wants to appear thinner. And, there is nothing wrong with that either.
