MMA Star Gabi Garcia ‘I Almost Died’ Cutting Weight… Had to Stop
1/4/2018 12:16 PM PST
Gabi Garcia says she’s got a damn good reason for missing weight in Japan … she literally could’ve killed herself if she kept droppin’ sweat.
“I decide not cut weight because I feeling like I almost died,” said Gabi — who insists she did NOT miss weight by 27 pounds, but rather 17.
The Brazilian MMA star told TMZ Sports about the scary events leading up to her weigh-in debacle … saying her vision went dark once she started shedding pounds, which told her it was time to call it quits.
In a social media post, Garcia also said she suffered from gnarly headaches and bloody noses anytime she trained.
Still, Gabi feels terrible for having to scrap her fight with Shinobu Kandori … and told us she’s gonna learn from this and come back stronger.
“I accept this fight. It’s my fault.”
