UFC 292 - Ian Machado Garry: “If it wasn’t for me, this card would go down the drain”

Ian Machado Garry believes he is the centre of attraction for the UFC 292 event; Machado Garry will be fighting against the well-experienced Neil Magny this Saturday night. It’s quite a bold statement from Machado Garry’s end as the UFC 292 fight card is stacked with highly appealing fights; to briefly break it down - there are two title fights, Chris Weidman is making his return after one of the nastiest injuries in the history of the sport, and then there’s the top contender Marlon Vera fighting.

Machado Garry’s statement may be incorrect, but it’s great to see a fighter with such high levels of confidence, as self-confidence is one of the crucial elements required for success. Machado Garry has shined prominently in all his matches so far, and it will be fascinating to see how he performs this Saturday night.

Ian Machado Garry’s shares his thoughts

Recently on The MMA Hour, the rising Irish welterweight contender Ian Machado Garry shared his thoughts on fighting for the UFC 292 event. “I believe that I am carrying this 292 card on my back, and that if it wasn’t for me, this card would go down the drain,” Garry said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

With the opponent change and everything – at the end of the day, I’m just happy the fans get to see me, because I know there’s a lot of Irish and Brazilian support in Boston that are excited to have me there.

I’m glad the fans get to watch me live in action”. “For sure, I’m Irish. I’m fighting in Boston. They have a massive Irish contingent. I’ve just been in Brazil the last two and a half months.

The biggest contingent of Brazilians is in Massachusetts and Boston". Machado Garry further said: “This is the stage, the platform where I go in there, and you say it: You’ve got the likes of Sean O’Malley and Aljamain and all these guys, that I’m the superstar on the card.

It happened in the last fight. It’s happening this fight. The wheels are in motion. I just have to show up and do my thing and the world will see”.
