Gabi Garcia wants new challenges. After her fourth open class title at the Pan Jiu-Jitsu championship last March 15, the super-heavyweifght athlete wants to take on new opponents, as she told GRACIEMAG’s Marcelo Dunlop.

“After my fourth Pan open class title, I want to look ahead. This year, I still have the WPJJC in Abu Dhabi, the Worlds and the ADCC in São Paulo. After all that, I want to have my MMA debut before the end of the year.”

Besides all that, Gabi also wants to go in uncharted waters, as she explains: “I want to be in a superfight at Metamoris one day. I think Gracie Barra’s Ana Laura Cordeiro would be a great opponent for me. She is young and very strong and we fought only once many years ago [in 2009, at the Pan, and Ana Laura won with a sweep], so it would be a interesting thing to see. It could be gi or no-gi, either way would be great.”

Gabi has some other suggestions for those wh want to see her in a crossover match: “If there’s other girls in MMA that want to fight me, I’m in. The problem is they are all too light. If a match against Ronda [Rousey] or Cris Cyborg would come up, I would love it!”
