“Dec. 16, stay tuned, be ready, because I’m going to go out there and I’m going to finish Vicente Luque whatever way I want,” Ian Machado Garry told The Energized Show during a recent interview. 

“And I can go in there and manipulate and manhandle people in any way, shape, or form that I want to because I’m that much better than them,” Ian Machado Garry explained. “This fight Luque, the fight with (Neil) Magny, the fight with D-Rod (Daniel Rodriguez), it’s all the same stuff, just repeated in different ways. I will find a way to have success, and I will win every single time because I am that much better than everyone. So, everyone should be excited.”
