Gabi Garcia RIZIN weigh-ins

RIZIN 2017 weigh-ins, Gabi Garcia misses by 26 pounds, Ian McCall gets into altercation

Weigh-ins are complete for the first of two RIZIN Fighting Federation events this weekend and it did not go down without incident.

Bantamweight Grand-Prix participants, Ian McCall and Manel Kape got into a physical altercation after stepping on the scale.

Kape slapped McCall in the back of the head following their staredown and McCall retaliated with what looked like a stiff jab to the face. Kape threw a punch back, but McCall dodged it. Officials then had to separate the two men.

McCall later stated that it was a slap and not a punch.


Ian McCall -RIZIN

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Gabi Garcia weighed in at 12kg over the allowable limit which equates to more than 26 pounds.

Garcia put her bout against 53-year old Shinobu Kandori in jeopardy. Although RIZIN President Nobuyuki Sakakibara was upset and said the fight cannot continue on, it appears as if it will.

The fights take place at the Saitama Super Arena, in Saitama, Japan. The first, the RIZIN Fighting Federation World Grand-Prix 2017: 2nd Round takes place Dec 29, 1AM ET/Dec 28, 10PM PT and can be ordered and streamed below via FITE TV.
