Pic: Gabi Garcia shrinks, woos Fedor Emelianenko with Brazilian beauty

Hey, remember when Gabi Garcia was bench-pressing Volkswagens and tearing the arms off female grapplers?

Those days may be over as the nine-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion is currently strutting around town with a slim-and-trim physique, akin to that of a fitness model, and was recently spotted with the hottest free agent in all of mixed martial arts (MMA).

None other than Fedor Emelianenko.

Ai u will dine with special people and win friends! The coolest sit face to face with Fedor is knowing that he's super shy and yet was keen to see my training videos, give me posture tips and how to face a fight! I gained phrases that will bring to life and also met this couple dear! ' "We were eager to meet you" good ta, I grew up watching him on TV, now he wanted to meet me? Account other gabi Eh so much that life preaches in people who already do not even know if eh reality or dream dinner with one of my idols in the sport Fedor Emelianenko Gaining new friends that for me would be just the idols tv! #blessednight #tksgod #fedoremelianenko #somostodosgabigarcia #fitgirls #fit #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #bjj #bjjlifestyle #bjjgirls #bjjgirl

Garcia has been angling for a submission grappling match opposite UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to no avail, and is currently planning for her MMA debut in 2016. The Brazilian -- originally a light heavyweight -- recently cut down to middleweight.

The results speak for themselves.

Many people spoke of my transformation yesterday! Ja comes before and after! But every day I see how much good eh maintain a better and healthier life, to pay a little more expensive in organic is cheaper in the future! That there is nothing quick and temporary, I want my body for life and for that I have to adapt myself with my diet forever! There were 3 years and not three days! If they were magic pills I would have already died, but three years of diet and sacrifice few can see! Shame on the face is the best medicine for happiness! I love myself! And every smallest jeans I love me even more! Thanks to those who helped me get this far! Not by aesthetics but for health and performance! #challenge #changeyourlife #somostodosgabigarcia #diet #dieta #paulomuzy #performancecomsaude #fit #fitgirls #treino #semfuronadieta #performancecomsaude #daypharma #mpteam #atpstore #somostosokvra #prontolight #crossfit #crossfitgirls
