The welterweight clash between Ian Machado Garry and Neil Magny was nothing less than intense, things heated up before the fight; during the pre-fight press conference, Neil Magny revealed that he would be looking forward to finishing Machado Garry in violent style; he promised that Macahdo Garry would be in for some ‘whoopin’.
However, the reality was absolutely the opposite of what Magnry anticipated. Machado Garry was successful in securing a dominating unanimous decision win against Neil Magny and now looks forward to fighting Stephen Thompson next.
Machado Garry seems to be just a few steps away from climbing the top tier in the welterweight division.
Ian Machado Garry on Neil Magny’s statement
Ian Machado Garry was awestruck with Magny’s statement and said the following in response to the comments made by Magny before the fight.
“Magny’s a scumbag and I’m glad I ******* went out and gave him a hiding,” Machado Garry said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “Because the **** he said at that press conference to you guys—I don’t know how none of you picked up on that right away—the first second I heard that, I was like, ‘What did he just say?’ I paused it, ‘Sorry, sorry, sorry, I must have misunderstood that.
I watched it again and I was like, ‘You cannot say something like that and get away with that.’” “Look, my baby is sat over in the corner over there. I know, for my life, I was a pest as a kid. Look at me, I’m the exact type of person that’s going to cause trouble.
I got ******* whacked with a wooden spoon, that doesn’t mean I go and ******* do it to him. No, you break the cycle. … If you want to be better and you want to change the world, don’t do what you don’t want done to you.
Machado Garry further said: Break the ******* cycle. Be a better human, be a better man, and let’s change the ******* world, and don’t ever, ever, ever touch a ******* kid. That’s my attitude and I don’t think there’s anyone in this room that’s going to ******* disagree with me and if you do, come talk to me”.
