Gabi Garcia’s return to RIZIN ends in 16-second no-contest

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.

In the Rizin main event, Kyoji Horiguchi impressed once again. Facing Hideo Tokoro in a bantamweight tournament, the former UFC flyweight contender improved to 20-2 in the sport with a vicious knockout in just 89 seconds.
