MMA fighter flips out after opponent badly misses weight

Gabi Garcia weighs in for her latest fight Gabi Garcia weighs in for her latest fight

When Garcia's weight was announced, Kandori was understandably upset.

Kandori yelled at Garcia on stage and reportedly called her a "disgrace" in Japanese, according to TMZ Sports.

Kandori has not competed in mixed martial arts in 17 years and figures from the MMA world are shocked that the freakshow fight was even made in the first place, with esteemed coach John Kavanagh condemning the fight as disgraceful.

Gabi Garcia was 12kg over, which is about 26 pounds. Kandori weighed in under the 209-pound maximum at just 162.25 pounds making their weight difference almost 75 pounds. But so far, the bout has not officially been scrapped. The bout was cancelled due to a rib injury suffered by Kandori, but the animosity between the two lingered on as Garcia instead faced Yumiko Hotta, a friend and former rival of Kandori.

Controversy has been following Garcia as of late, she was involved in a backstage altercation with her opponent earlier this week and her last bout with Rizin ended in a no contest after an eye poke to her opponent happened just 16 seconds into the fight.

Rizin has not made an official announcement canceling the fight, but Garcia's entire year has been plagued by unusual happenings as she continues to fight women much smaller than her.

While 28 pounds isn't the worst miss ever (Legacy FC's Gerald Harris smashed an opponent that came in 50 pounds heavy in 2016), it's rare to see fighters in major promotions off by more than a few pounds. She has not fought in MMA since November 2000.
