Diego Sanchez believes Ian Garry is setting himself up for failure.
Garry is a rising UFC welterweight who hasn’t been shy in speaking his mind. Fight fans won’t soon forget Garry wore a shirt with a mugshot of fellow UFC 170-pounder Geoff Neal. Some feel karma has come back to bite “The Future,” as he’s now getting flak for defending his wife’s “How to be a WAG” book (more on that here).
Diego Sanchez Sees Downfall Of Ian Garry Coming
In the Instagram clip seen above, Ian Garry told “The Schmo” that he believes he’d “smoke” Colby Covington if the two share the Octagon.
“Look, I’m planning a UFC Dublin card soon,” Garry said. “So, if they wanna put me and Colby as the main event in UFC Dublin then sign me up. I’m ready to go. Look, if UFC wants to do it I’m ready to go. I’d sleep that guy in a heartbeat.”
Sanchez ended up commenting on the IG post, and made a not so favorable comparison between Garry and his fellow Irishman Conor McGregor.
“Ian will do the same as Conor talk a storm and eventually get beat by some struggling kid from Brazil or Russia who needs less and is more hungry and honorable,” Sanchez wrote. “Mark my words this young man gets subbed by a Brazilian or knocked out by a Mexican who comes from nothing and just wants it more… his arrogance will be his weakness in the first defeat”
Could UFC 296 be that moment Sanchez is talking about? Garry is scheduled to take on Vicente Luque on that card, which will be taking place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 16. Going into that bout, Garry has an undefeated pro MMA record of 13-0 and he’s coming off a one-sided unanimous decision win over Neil Magny.
