“Kayla (Harrison) got here on the web to speak shit, Julia Budd (ex-Bellator champion) too. I accepted all these fights, however she (Kayla) at all times stated that I used to be a simple battle. That I had no approach to battle her. However the Gabi of yesteryear is just not the identical as Gabi (at this time). Then I got here to my supervisor and stated: ‘Look, she is difficult me, I wish to battle together with her. What does she wish to battle with me? ‘ Then it begins: ‘I battle in any class, I battle open weight’. I stated: ‘No, it should arrive on time and it’ll not be like this’. Then: ‘No, I desire a take a look at at Gabi, I would like this, I would like that’. All proper then! Let’s go! Do you wish to take a look at me on a regular basis? What you need? Would you like me to hit how a lot weight? I talked to my physician, (to seek out out) what the minimal weight I might get. Every part she was asking for. (However) in actuality, she doesn’t wish to battle ”,
“So, she involves say, ‘I’m primary.’ You’re the quantity one of many PFL, who put you in (good) fights and made an occasion for you, as Rizin additionally put up battle for me,” Gabi Garcia added. “Solely she doesn’t come to say that she is primary, as a result of there’s Amanda (Nunes), nicely, there’s Cris (Cyborg). She is way from being … So if I’m an easy battle, why not battle me? Her final opponent appears to have 11 losses. I come from seven victories. So then. Kayla, I wish to battle you. First time I problem somebody. She challenged me, we’ve been speaking for 2 years now, and I say: ‘What would you like to have the ability to battle with me? Would you like the take a look at, the (anti) doping? Would you like me to hit the burden? What you need?’. As a result of (simply) difficult me is simple. So, that’s my purpose. I wish to battle together with her. I don’t know when that may occur,

Even a catchweight battle would most probably be both an excessive amount of weight for Harrison to maneuver as much as and an excessive amount of weight for Garcia to maneuver down. Garcia naturally carries an enormous body anyway, so there’s a restrict to how a lot weight she might lower. Harrison would additionally lose loads of her pure explosiveness and pace shifting up an excessive amount of weight both.
This doesn’t even think about the truth that the 2 girls compete in two totally different promotions. Harrison competes within the U.S. primarily based PFL, while Garcia competes in Japan with RIZIN. Beneath regular circumstances, the logistics of this battle would have been tough, however much more so now with COVID-19 remaining at giant globally, this can be very unlikely that this battle would occur any time quickly.
