Undefeated Irish prospect Ian ‘The Future’ Garry moves to 9-0 with a solid three-round display against Darian Weeks in the featured prelim bout of UFC 273.
Garry was the more active fighter in each round, despite Weeks pressuring more. Weeks did manage to clinch several times, but Garry’s takedown defense looked extremely impressive as he kept the fight on the feet for the most part.
‘The Future’ rocked Weeks several times in the final round, and looked like he may be close to a finish. However, Weeks’ toughness, paired with Garry having his nose bust open, resulted in the fight going the full three rounds. The young Irishman’s striking was crisp enough to see the fight to its full fruition, winning him every round convincingly.
In the post-fight interview, Ian Garry announced that he will soon be a father, as well as sending out a message to Dana White and the UFC to match him up with another opponent as soon as possible.
