Ian Machado Garry wants to settle the beef with Sean Strickland inside the Octagon.

The former UFC middleweight champion aimed Machado Garry and his wife before UFC 296, which the Irishman ended up having to pull out due to an illness. Since then, Strickland has continued to blast Machado Garry and now the Irishman wants to settle their beef inside the Octagon.

“Listen, we can shoot shots at each other all day long, me and another bloke, but here’s the two things I’ll point out — my wife was called a pedophile by Sean Strickland,” Garry said during UFC 298 media day. “No woman ever deserves to be called that. My son, the people that follow Sean Strickland, commented on a couple of my photos at the start of all this saying, ‘Is the kid even his?’ I should never have to hear that. Those two things, they emotionally get me.

“I’ll get mine back. I’ll thump the f*****g mouth off Sean Strickland one day, and there will be nothing he can do about it. I’ll talk to him, I’ll dance in his face, I’ll do whatever I want, because the truth is when we get locked into that cage one day, he’s never going to be able to deal with me,” Garry added.

Although Garry and Strickland fight in different weight classes, should they fight it would be massive for the UFC and could headline a card or be a co-main on a pay-per-view.

Ian Machado Garry blasts Sean Strickland for calling his wife a pedophile

Part of the reason why Ian Machado Garry wants to fight Sean Strickland is for what he said about his wife and son.

Strickland called Garry’s wife a pedophile and wondered if the Irishman’s kid was even his. Although Garry is a trash-talker himself, he believes Strickland crossed the line which is why he wants to fight him.

“I’ll still talk shit, that’s the person I am. I’ll talk shit. You want to clap at me, I’ll clap back. That’s how I’ve grown up. That’s the way me and my friends grew up. But there’s a line. There’s a line on what you say and what you do, and it’s not trash to call my wife a pedophile, or say my kid isn’t even mine. That’s not trash talk. That’s abuse. That’s horrible, and no person on the planet deserves that,” Garry said.

“I feel like we’ve seen it recently, and the two main culprits are f*****g Colby and Sean Strickland. Colby bringing up Leon’s dad and Sean just being negative toward every single person possible. It shows a very dark age in MMA. This is not what the sport’s about,” Garry said.

Before Garry can fight Strickland, he will need to beat Geoff Neal on Saturday at UFC 298.
