The rising welterweight fighter Ian Machado Garry has been making a lot of noise in the welterweight division, and his consistent success is making him a very demanding opponent. Machado Garry is set to show up against the well-experienced Vicente Luque on 16th December.

A win from here will be huge for Machado Garry, as he could potentially get a match with someone from the top 5. Sean Brady wants a piece of Ian Machado Garry if he’s successful in securing a win in his match against Vicente Luque.

Brady has just lost once in the UFC (against Belal Muhammed) and is also higher in rankings when compared with Machado Garry.

Sean Brady on fighting Ian Machado Garry

During the recent post fight press conference, Sean Brady shared his thoughts on fighting Ian Machado Garry.

“I’m just going to keep it honest: Just the way he [Ian Machado Garry] went about it with his team, it just rubs me the wrong way,” Brady said, as quoted by “He just rubs the sport the wrong way.

I’m a true professional in this sport, and I just don’t like the way he walks around with the cameras and gets kicked out of Leon Edwards’ gym. He’s always talking about people, and it’s wack. I think he’s wack, and I’ll rag doll him.

I think that’s the easiest fight in the division. If he can get through (Vicente) Luque – which I don’t think he will; Luque is an amazing fighter – I heard they’re coming to Atlantic City (N.J.) in March.

We’ll see (if I can fight him). I want to be active, like I said, I had some problems with injuries, but if I can stay healthy, I want to fight March, I heard they’re coming to AC (Atlantic City), that’s literally an hour from my house. I’ve defended one belt in AC, so that would be ideal. But yeah, I want to be active”.
