UFC star Ian Garry agrees to fight Michael Venom Page in return: ‘Him and his coaches are deciding’

Ian Garry set to fight Michael Venom Page at UFC 303 in massive June showdown

Unbeaten welterweight striker, Ian Garry appears to have given up on his pursuit of a potential title-eliminator against former champion, Colby Covington, and has now switched his focus to a clash against recent UFC addition, Michael Venom Page in a summer comeback.

Garry, the current number seven ranked welterweight contender, returned at UFC 298 back in February in Anaheim, turning in a close split decision win over Geoff Neal to improve to 14-0 as a professional.

“I’ve said yes [to fighting against Michael Venom Page],” Ian Garry explained. “I’ve said yes to that name, him and his coaches are deciding because he seems a bit heavy to make weight in seven weeks’ time, but I’ve said yes.”
