Robert Garcia - Oxnard-based multi time trainer of the year, Robert Garcia, has weighed in on the issue of female MMA fighter Ronda Rousey being set to appear on legendary boxing publication "The Ring's," January 2016 front cover, sarcastically suggesting that if she can make an appearance, then so can WWE's 'The Undertaker.'

Oxnard-based multi time trainer of the year, Robert Garcia, has weighed in on the issue of female MMA fighter Ronda Rousey being set to appear on legendary boxing publication “The Ring’s,” January 2016 front cover, sarcastically suggesting that if she can make an appearance, then so can WWE’s ‘The Undertaker.’

Robert Garcia : Unhappy With Brook v Rios – ‘They Think They’re Mayweather’

Robert Garcia - If trainer Robert Garcia is to be believed, then the proposed Kell Brook v Brandon Rios dust-up could have hit the skids already.
