An Exclusive Fight Preview by A.C. Mann.
Another high-octane offering is a match between a familiar face, the formidable, Monica 'Flowerbomb' Garcia (16-5) and a newcomer, Nilka ‘La Rosa’ Garcia [13-4].
Monica has one win in three title bouts, defeating Shay 'The Fox' Mazzato (16-8) at LFC 23: Guilty Pleasures. She would go on to hold the title for ten months and subsequently losing it to Roxy 'Roundhouse' Michaels (10-3) at LFC 25: Showdown At Sam's Town.
At times, Monica has not seemed herself without the title, appearing in need of the validation that only the belt holds. However, her fight game has not suffered, as we saw in her last few performances. When she stays focused and on point, Monica’s innate brutality is at the fore. Opponents better adjust for the onslaught and power that only Monica can bring.
Coming to the LFC from San Juan, Puerto Rico, is boxer Nilka Garcia. The fact that she is a boxer from Puerto Rico brings with it, a history, that you must respect.
The Caribbean Island has produced a long line of male boxing champions and a growing number of female ones. Nilka, already a successful wrestler, has decided that MMA, particularly the LFC, is next on her list of endeavors. She has a natural swagger in the cage that suggests confidence.
Expect fireworks when ‘The Flowerbomb’ meets a fighter who will be representing an entire Boxing Nation. If Nilka wants to make it in the big leagues, she must unload the toolbox and cause a Ruckus!
