Ian Garry Agrees to Fight Michael Page at UFC 303

Ian Garry is all in, ready to throw down with fighters below his rank.

He’s been shouting out for a fight with Colby Covington. But, it’s a no-go. Covington’s out with an injury until September. With top-ranked fighters either booked or benched, Garry’s options are slim.

So, what’s next? Michael Page is on Garry’s radar. A bout in Manchester would be ideal, but Garry’s got his sights set on UFC 303. That’s where Conor McGregor makes his comeback against Michael Chandler.

Garry’s stance? “I’ve said yes.” He’s waiting on Page and his team to decide. The weight cut in seven weeks is a concern for Page, but Garry’s game.

It’s not just Page, though. Garry’s been green-lighting fights left and right. Covington, Sean Brady, even the winner of a recent UFC on ESPN 56 co-headliner. His list is long.

“I’ve lost count,” Garry admits. He’s been up for anyone the UFC throws at him. That’s his M.O. since joining the UFC. “Yes” is his default answer.

With seven UFC wins and no losses, Garry’s on a roll. His latest victory? A split decision against Geoff Neal at UFC 298.

Page, on the other hand, just debuted in the UFC with a win over Kevin Holland.

Despite a win, Garry’s last fight didn’t wow everyone. But Garry sees it differently.

“Clinical,” he calls it. Neal’s got power, but Garry boasts speed, smarts, and superior footwork. He’s confident he owned that fight, start to finish.
