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.

Jeez, talk about missing weight.

They have to pull this fight, it would be disgusting let it continue. It was disgusting to begin with.

I don't know why but the way Gabi Gacia's opponent reacted made me think her reaction was staged, i could be wrong though

Not defending the fight, because it is pretty much a joke. But they picked her opponent because she beat 330lbs Svetlana Goundarenko in the Ultimate L-1 tournament (1995)

So I doubt they'll stop the fight now
