Undefeated Irish MMA fighter 23-year-old Ian Garry might be the next big thing in the MMA scene, as he has been routinely compared to Conor McGregor. Garry currently has a 6-0 MMA record.
At Cage Warriors 110, the owner of the promotion Graham compared Garry to McGregor. Boylan and matchmaker Ian Dean were responsible for McGregor being noticed by UFC.
While being interviewed by The Bash MMA, Ian Garry talked about wanting to sign with UFC. Garry then noted that he would love to make his UFC debut against Mike Perry, stating that Garry would ruin Perry.
“I know it sounds hilarious but I would love to fight ‘Wonderboy’ (Stephen Thompson), like I would love to fight Colby (Covington). I would like these guys but they are never gonna give me that. Give a Mike Perry. I would f****ng ruin Mike Perry. Wonderboy won’t happen, obviously. Cause he’s in the top 10, he’s great. And Mike Perry could happen because the chap’s lost his f****ng mind, let’s be honest. And he be dumb enough to take the fight as well. He’s like, ‘Yeah I’ll fight anybody’. Shut up. You are a d**k. Honestly, I feel that I don’t care. Anyone who’s gonna have a platform where I beat them, it’s gonna excel my career then that’s all I need. It doesn’t matter who it’s against, I’m going to fold them.”
Ian Garry is set to take on Jack Grant for the vacant Cage Warriors welterweight title next. We will have to see when Garry will be making his eventual UFC debut.
