The Future

Ireland

Top prospect remains undefeated
WelterweightUFC
July 2, 2022
Garry defeated Gabriel Green via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC 276 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
The UFC has been exceedingly cautious regarding who they have matched Garry -- a legitimate top prospect -- up against thus far, but Green was by far the best opponent Garry has seen to date and he passed the test with flying colors. Green hung around, but Garry used his size and length advantage to coast to a victory. The striking numbers were fairly similar, as Garry connected on 129 total strikes compared to 102 from Green, but Garry landed the bigger shots, with a Round 3 knockdown being the biggest moment of the fight. The Irishman won't turn 25 years of age until November, so don't be surprised if the company continues to slow play their hand here.

Slated for July 2 clash at UFC 276
WelterweightUFC
June 3, 2022
Garry will square off against Gabe Green on the UFC 276 card on July 2 in Las Vegas, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Garry has gotten off to a strong start early in his UFC career, picking up two relatively easy wins early in his career. He's considered one of the better prospects in the welterweight division and is huge for the class, standing at 6-foot-3. That height gives him a five-inch advantage over Green, who is on a two-match win streak of his own, and Garry also sports a one-inch reach advantage.
Top prospect wins again
WelterweightUFC
April 9, 2022
Garry defeated Darian Weeks via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC 273 on Saturday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
The UFC has been cautious regarding who they have matched Garry -- a legitimate top prospect -- up against in his first two bouts with the company, and he has responded with a pair of victories. He looked better for the duration of Saturday's fight than he did in his debut against Jordan Williams this past November, although that fight ended in a knockout with a second left on the clock in Round 1. Garry's long-term potential is obvious when you watch him fight. He's athletic, has legitimate power and is massive for the welterweight division at 6-foot-3. There will probably be some bumps in the road along the way, but Garry is clearly a fighter to keep an eye on at 170 pounds moving forward.
Will fight at UFC 273

January 19, 2022
Garry will take on Darian Weeks in a welterweight bout at UFC 273 on April 9, Team Iridium Sports Agency reports.
ANALYSIS
Garry looked great in his UFC debut back in early November when he was able to knock out Jordan Williams in the first round. Garry was a highly-regarded prospect and will look to impress people again come April.
Finds form in UFC debut
WelterweightUFC
November 6, 2021
Garry defeated Jordan Williams via KO (punches) at 4:58 of Round 1 at UFC 268 on Saturday in New York City.
ANALYSIS
A highly-regarded prospect making his UFC debut, Garry looked quite ordinary for the vast majority of his maiden voyage. Williams was getting the better of the action over the -435 favorite, landing some significant damaging shots on the feet, but Garry stepped forward late in the round and connected with a short right hand which turned his opposition's lights out. Garry admitted to being quite nervous in his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, and it's reasonable to believe those nerves impacted his performance. After all, Garry won't turn 24 years of age until later this month. The Irish fighter has immense upside and needs to be monitored closely as he progresses at 170 pounds.
UFC debut set for Nov. 6

September 8, 2021
Garry will take on Jordan Williams in a welterweight bout at UFC 268 on Nov. 6, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Garry will be making his debut with the UFC. The welterweight currently holds a career MMA record of 7-0-0. He last fought back in June when he defeated Jack Grant by unanimous decision at Cage Warriors 125. Williams has dropped each of his first two UFC bouts.
