Ian Machado Garry’s thoughts on Stephen Thompson
In an interview with MMA Fighting, Ian Machado Garry spoke about the potential fight with Stephen Thompson and explained how he can strongly foresee it happening.
“I think there’s every possibility this fight happens,” Garry said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “It makes so much sense for this fight to materialize for the fans, for the UFC, the buildup to the fight.
The excitement that this fight would generate for the UFC fans, for the organization, it would be phenomenal — and to do it on a card like [Madison Square Garden in New York], to be able to do it on the pay-per-view in December, or to be able to headline a Fight Night in an arena somewhere would be even better.
