Ian Machado Garry has suggested that his seventh win in the UFC might just be his most spectacular yet.
The Dubliner returns to the Octagon at UFC 296 on December 16 where he will take on sometimes training partner Vicente Luque in a fight generally regarded as the Dubliner’s sternest test to date, and in what will be Garry’s debut fight on a pay-per-view main card he has predicted that he can get the job done in a number of ways against the 32-fight veteran Luque.
“They should be, they f*cking should be,” Garry added in typically effervescent style when asked if fans should be excited by his rise through the UFC’s welterweight fold.
“I’m unbelievable. I’ve been telling you this since I was a teenager, I am unbelievable,” he added. “The way my brain works, and the way I look at fights, and the way I calculate stuff is just different to people on the planet. I have a different wavelength, a different understanding of the way fighting works.
“And I can go in there and manipulate and manhandle people in any way, shape, or form that I want to because I’m that much better than them. This fight with Luque, the fight with Magny, the fight with D-Rod, it’s all the same stuff, just repeated in different ways. I will find a way to have success, and I will win every single time because I am that much better than everyone. So, everyone should be excited.”
The Irishman will enter the fight on the back of a prolonged, 15-minute domination of another UFC veteran, Neil Magny, this past August and a repeat performance will almost certainly advance the tenth-ranked Garry a few rungs up the 170-pound ladder.
