George Garcia issued the following statement:

“Now that the dust has settled, I went back and watched my fight. I was at a complete disadvantage as my opponent grabbed the ropes and cage numerous times to prevent takedowns and a submission finish.

It’s unfortunate the officials did not take action as it ultimately cost me my victory. I appeal to M-1 Global to review the fight and overturn the decision, because this is not right.”
