When it comes to female mixed martial arts, there is one female fighter who possess a size and strength that is unparalleled when compared to her peers, and no we are not talking about Cris Cyborg.

A highly decorated Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner, Brazilian native Gabi Garcia stands at 6′ 2″ with over 200lbs of shredded muscle with a power and ferocity to back it all up.

A member of the IBJJF hall of fame, she was first introduced to American audiences in The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil III as a guest coach for Wanderlei Silva and most recently has decimated her opposition inside the RIZIN Fighting Championships ring authoring a 4-0 record with all wins by way of stoppage.

So who will be the next person to challenge Gabi?

In the following Instagram video, Gabi is matched up in an arm wrestling match with MMA fighter Ray Elbe – who also happens to be Cris Cyborg’s boyfriend.

A welterweight with over thirty mixed martial arts fights and a 1st-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the Ultimate Fighter veteran certainly has his hands full in this particular match up.

Who will win this battle of the sexes? Watch the arm wrestling match unfold below.

Gabrielle “Gabi” Lemos Garcia is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, grappling world champion, MMA fighter and a member of the IBJJF Hall of Fame. She is widely considered as the most dominant Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor in the female division’s history, where she won the vast majority of important tournaments before receiving her black belt rank. The famous Gaúcha (person from a southern region of Brazil) has since reached the degree of black belt under the illustrious Fábio Gurgel, quickly becoming one of the brightest stars in the Alliance Academy, a camp that is regarded as the strongest in the sport.
