Get ready for a seismic shift in the MMA landscape as BJJ sensation Gabi Garcia gears up to make her long-awaited return to the cage on April 25 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Centurion FC officials have confirmed that Garcia will face off against Barbara Nepomuceno in a highly anticipated rematch, marking a pivotal moment in Garcia's MMA journey.

Garcia, boasting an impressive record of 6-0 with 1 no-contest, last showcased her dominance in MMA back in December 2018 when she submitted Nepomuceno with a blistering keylock at RIZIN 14. Renowned for her heavyweight grappling prowess, Garcia has left a trail of destruction across Asia, securing all six of her victories by stoppages.

"Centurion FC is coming, and coming strong," remarked Centurion FC CEO Roberto Gallo. "Having Gabi Garcia, it's a privilege. A privilege that reflects Centurion FC's direction."

While Garcia's absence from MMA may have been prolonged, she hasn't been idle. In 2019, she returned to grappling competitions with a vengeance, etching her name in the annals of history at the ADCC by clinching her fourth gold medal. 

Additionally, Garcia showcased her supremacy at the IBJJF Pans, clinching double gold in both her division and the openweight class, reaffirming her status as a force to be reckoned with.

Her opponent, Barbara Nepomuceno, may be entering the cage with a record of 0-1 in MMA, but her accolades in kickboxing speak volumes. A former WGP Kickboxing champion in Brazil, Nepomuceno has demonstrated her striking prowess with recent victories in the kickboxing arena.

As Garcia braces for her triumphant return to MMA, fans worldwide eagerly anticipate witnessing her unrivaled skill set in action once again. With the stage set for a showdown of titanic proportions, April 25 promises to be a night to remember in the world of mixed martial arts.
