Ian Garry Losing Hope on Future Bout with Colby Covington

Oh boy, Ian Garry’s getting a bit antsy, huh? Seems like he’s about ready to throw in the towel on squaring up against Colby Covington. And who can blame him? The back-and-forth’s been nothing short of a soap opera.

Ads everywhere, right? But back to the drama.

Garry’s been on Covington’s case, pushing for a fight that’s become the stuff of legends. Covington, never one to back down from a war of words, has been giving as good as he gets. He’s even thrown in some zingers about Garry’s wife and set up a bunch of hoops for the fight to happen. Despite Garry’s claims of Covington dodging the fight, Colby recently said “no thanks,” claiming Garry’s not taking this seriously enough.

Meanwhile, Garry’s been honing his skills at Chute Boxe Diego Lima down in Brazil. He even made an appearance at UFC 301 in Rio, still banging the drum for a fight against Covington. In a chat with ESPN, he doubled down, accusing Covington of ducking the fight. Garry’s hope for the matchup is starting to look a bit thin.

Garry didn’t mince words. “Colby needs to stop running,” he said. He’s convinced Covington’s looking for any excuse to avoid the fight, despite offers being on the table. Garry’s just waiting for a “yes” from Covington to get the ball rolling, but he’s not holding his breath.

Garry’s track record’s pretty stellar, with seven wins and no losses in the UFC. He’s taken down some big names like Daniel Rodriguez, Neil Magny, and Geoff Neal. Covington, on the other hand, didn’t fare too well in his last title shot against Leon Edwards at UFC 296, losing by unanimous decision.

So, what’s next? Will these two ever face off in the octagon, or is this all just a bunch of hype? Only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure: the MMA world is watching.
