Ian Garry recently sat down for a conversation with talkSPORT. During their discussion, Garry talked about his next potential fight and the list of fighters he agreed to take on in the octagon.

I feel like I've gone through about eight or nine names... They've offered me Colby, I've said 'yes' to 'MVP', I have said 'yes' to Sean Brady... I've said 'yes' to Joaquin Buckley. I've said 'yes' to every single person that has come my way. That is what I do.

Ian Garry and Colby Covington had a heated back-and-forth in the past few months. Garry had been pushing for a throwdown with Covington after he publicly disrespected his wife and his family. Although the feud was going strong, Covington suddenly retraced from his statement. He recently declared that he is only interested in legacy matchups now and called out Belal Muhammad and Charles Oliveira.

Garry’s last fight was against Geoff Neal at UFC 298. He wants to fight again this year on the Conor McGregor undercard at UFC 303. However, Garry does not seem to be able to land any opponents for his dream event. There is a potential showdown with Michael ‘Venom’ Page for UFC 303 but Michael Page and his coaches are reportedly considering the offer.

The 26-year-old made an interesting statement during his recent talkSPORT interview. Garry talked about the new wave of talent that has emerged in the UFC’s welterweight division.

But the truth is there’s a new wave of talent coming through. When you look at it, you can see it quite clearly. There’s me. There’s Shavkat. There’s Jack Della Maddalena. There’s three examples of younger guys coming in and tearing up the division.
