JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Ian Garry knows he still has ways to go before fighting the top, but there are two names he aspires to face.
Garry (9-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) remained unbeaten when he defeated Darian Weeks in the featured prelim of UFC 273 on Saturday.
The 24-year-old Sanford MMA fighter was a little critical of his performance, but is excited to go back to the drawing board. He has no opponent in mind for his next fight, but down the line, he dreams of fighting the likes of Nate Diaz and Stephen Thompson.
“Right now I’m in no position to call people out, that’s not what I want to do,” Garry told reporters including MMA Junkie at a post-fight news conference Saturday. “I know who I dream of fighting, there’s two dream fights. I’d love to fight Wonderboy (Thompson) on a stylistic matchup just due to the fact that striker versus striker, I think it’d be entertaining, and I’d love to fight Diaz because I definitely feel I could stop him. I just don’t think he could beat me. I don’t get tired, I’m gonna piece the mouth off him.”
