Colby Covington offers to fight Ian Garry calls him cuck I'd be honored to settle that UFC

Again turning his attention to welterweight contender, Ian Garry and his wife and manager, Layla Anna-Lee – outspoken former interim champion, Colby Covington has offered to “settle” the pair’s rivalry next, in the form of a rumored fight between the two.

Covington, the current number five ranked welterweight contender, headlined UFC 296 earlier this month against undisputed champion, Leon Edwards, suffering a one-sided unanimous decision loss to the Birmingham native in his third attempt to strike undisputed gold.

As for Garry, the unbeaten Dubliner was scheduled to make his return on that same flagship card, until a battle with pneumonia during fight week forced him to withdraw from a set fight with Vicente Luque.

Questioning the status of Portmarnock native, Garry’s relationship with Anna-Lee – Covington alluded to apparent infidelity from the latter, questioning media and fans attending a fight week press conference if they had engaged in sexual intercourse with Garry’s spouse.

And continuing his tirade aimed at the Dublin-born striker in the aftermath of his loss to Edwards, Covington labelled 26-year-old a cuckold, before offering to fight him inside the Octagon next.

“There is one guy that is a legitimate cuck and I’ve called him out for that,” Colby Covington said of Ian Garry during a recent interview with Tucker Carlson. “I found out that this had happened, the girls as selling a book called ‘WAG’ – which means ‘wifes and girlfriends’. So, she was promoting that she had a boyfriend and she had a husband. It shouldn’t be allowed, it’s pretty nasty behaviour.”
