Gabi Garcia badly misses weight for Rizin fight with 53-year-old Shinobu Kandori
(https:)
The controversial fight between Gabi Garcia and Shinobu Kandori took an odd twist on Thursday. The six-time jiu-jitsu world champion stepped on the scale to take on 53-year-old Kandori, who hasn’t competed in mixed martial arts in 17 years. News broke that Garcia had missed weight by 12kg (26.4 pounds) for their 95kg-fight (209.4 pounds) and the bout was off of the Dec. 29 card. Speaking with MMA Fighting hours after, Garcia said that she only got to Japan a day before the official weigh-ins, and claims that she missed weight by 8.8 pounds. The promotion has yet to make an official announcement if the bout will in fact be cancelled.

Brave champ Carlston Harris welcomes Al-Selawe as challenger, willing to fight in Jordan
(arabsmma.com)
Brave Welterweight champion Carlston Harris wants to fight outside of Brazil and defend his title in a foreign country. Even though he’s from Guyana, “Moçambique” has spent his entire career fighting in Brazil, a place he calls home for nearly eight years now. And he knows his next opponent could very well be Jarrah Al-Selawe, who moved to 3-0 with Brave Combat Federation after shutting down Carl Booth at Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions. And with “The Jordanian Lion” campaigning for a Brave fight card in his home country, after claiming H.H Sheikh Khalid made him a promise, Harris isn’t opposed to defending his belt at his opponent’s home turf. Actually, the Welterweight champion relishes the challenge.

Why Invicta FC flyweight champion Jennifer Maia turned down TUF 26 opportunity
(https:)
Jennifer Maia is one of the top flyweights in the world, so why wasn’t she on the 26th season of The Ultimate Fighter? The UFC recently crowned its first women’s flyweight champion with a special edition of the company’s reality show, and Maia, the current Invicta FC 125-pound champion, was not listed as one of the contestants. Set to defend her Invicta FC belt just seven days after Nicco Montaño won the inaugural UFC title with a decision win over Roxanne Modafferi, Maia said that she got a call from the promotion to be on the reality show, but turned down the opportunity. "They invited me to be on The Ultimate Fighter, but since I’m the Invicta champion I thought that I don’t need to go through TUF to be in the UFC,” Maia told MMA Fighting. "Sometimes you’re not in a good day there and end up losing, and it’s not smart to leave a promotion where I’m the champion to try something.
