Layla Anna-Lee, the 40-year-old wife of rising UFC welterweight contender Ian Garry, is snapping back at Sean Strickland, Colby Covington, and anyone who has something nasty to say about her marriage. 

Over the last several months, Garry and his wife have been inundated with negative comments about their relationship. It all seemingly started when former middleweight champion Sean Strickland dubbed Anna-Lee a “predator” and a “succubus” for marrying someone 14 years younger and significantly more successful than herself.

The vitriol really kicked up a notch when it was revealed that she had written a book some years ago entitled How to Be a WAG. The 11-page manuscript acts as a how-to guide for older women looking to date and marry young athletes and celebrities. 

From there, rumors about their eyebrow-raising relationship with Anna-Lee’s ex-husband began to take on a life of its own and became fodder for fighters looking to pick a fight with ‘The Future’ and his blushing bride. 

Attempting to dispell some of the rumors running rampant, Layla Anna-Lee posted a lengthy video on social media, addressing the three biggest lies being spread about her husband and their marriage.  “Let’s begin with lie number one,” Anna-Lee started.

“Ian took his wife’s ex-husband’s surname. I can’t believe anyone would accept this to be true, but the MMA community picked it up and ran a full marathon with it. In fact, some people are still running with it now gripping on with sweaty trembling fingers in order to justify blatant trolling.

“It’s not true. It never was true. Machado is my maiden name. We added our names together when we got married. It’s not that big a deal. Now that you know that it was a lie, you can kick yourself for believing it. Preferably in the face.”

She also addressed Garry’s relationship with Richard Cullen, her ex-husband who also works as Garry’s nutritionist. 

“Lie Number two, his wife’s ex lives with them,” she added. “No, no, he does not. He never has done. Yeah, I wouldn’t want to know this lie was born out of the mouth of an MMA YouTuber desperate for clicks.”

Layla Anna-Lee Responds to Rumors That Ian Garry is a ‘Cuck’

Anna-Lee saved the best for last, going in on fighters who have dubbed Ian Garry a cuck — a man whose wife is sexually active with other men. Recently, three-time UFC title challenger Colby Covington released a series of videos targeting Garry and dubbing the Irishman a cuck throughout. 

“Lie number three, Ian is a cuck,” she continued. “Step up Sean Strickland, a man who is unlikely to be au fait with the Shakespearean English he unwittingly used when calling Ian a cuck. First penned in the story of Othello the word cuckold refers to the fear of a man who has been betrayed by his wife, Sean Strickland has been talking an awful lot about Ian Garry’s wife. 

“I’ve been called a sexual predator, a pedophile, an abuser all by the man who allegedly suffered that exact abuse as a child growing up. 

“In the Shakespearean classic, Iago tells Othello about Desdemona’s adultery and he blindly believes the rumors. It’s serendipity and not merely coincidental that Iago was lying. There was no truth to the story at all. Othello – like the crowd at UFC 298 – was cruelly misled by Iago’s jealousy and insecurities. Othello was never the cuckold. His wife was never adulterous. And notably, when the liars were exposed, Iago was taken away to be tortured and killed. Thank you, Shakespeare.”
