On the way to his win Garcia defeated his weight rival Andre Galvao twice (once by submission and then by pts) and Demian Maia, proving that Garcia ‘IS BACK!’ When asked about his return to the top, Garcia stated: ‘I was never gone! I had a difficult year last year with many injuries that caused me to gain 22 pounds in weght. When I tried to quickly lose weight to compete it caused several other health problems, but this is another year. After being close in ’04 when I ended up 2nd behind Xande now I am at the top of the Nationals and I am getting closer each day to my ultimate goal. I will keep training and competing until I reach my ultimate goal which is winning the World’s Absolute title!’ This week Garcia travels to Los Angeles, California to compete in the SUB-X.The National Titles also marked the return to the podium of another champion Rodrigo ‘Comprido’, who after a few years on the fringe appears to be returning to the form that gave him 2 World Absolute titles: ‘I have been on the podium but not on the top for some time now, but today they gave me an opening and I did my thing.
