One of the standout performers at the recent UFC pay-per-view event was welterweight contender Ian Machado Garry. The Irishman showcased his skills and maintained his unbeaten record with a dominant victory over divisional veteran Neil Magny in Boston.
A One-Sided Display
In a three-round bout, Machado Garry put on a clinic, outclassing Magny in every aspect of the fight. His striking was precise, his grappling was relentless, and his overall performance was nothing short of impressive. The judges’ unanimous decision in his favor was a testament to his dominance.
Setting His Sights on Stephen Thompson
With this victory, Machado Garry is now eyeing a greater challenge. He has his sights set on former two-time title challenger and current #7-ranked contender Stephen Thompson. Machado Garry believes that a win over Thompson will further solidify his position in the division and bring him one step closer to UFC gold.
Machado Garry’s performance did not go unnoticed by his fellow countryman and UFC superstar Conor McGregor. In a voice recording shared on Twitter, McGregor praised Machado Garry’s skills and expressed his belief that the rising star has the potential to become a two-division champion, just like McGregor himself.
Replicating McGregor’s Success
Machado Garry has long been vocal about his aspirations to replicate McGregor’s success inside the Octagon. Like McGregor, he made his way to the UFC through the Cage Warriors promotion, where he achieved championship success. While he still has a way to go before reaching McGregor’s level of accomplishment, Machado Garry is determined to continue his upward trajectory and make a name for himself in the welterweight division.
