Takes Magny apart in Boston
August 20, 2023
Garry defeated Neil Magny via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-24) at UFC 292 on Saturday in Boston.
Garry deserved every one of those scorecards, as he never looked back after dropping Magny with a leg kick in the opening seconds of the fight. Put simply, we've never seen Magny dominated like this before. "The Future" used his range and kicks to render "The Haitian Sensation" a one-legged fighter after the first round and never succumbed to his opponent's pressure. While he has a tendency to be drawn into wars, Garry uses his frame and technique to perfection, as he is able to stay on the outside and frustrate opponents with quick, varied strikes. The 25-year-old called out Stephen Thompson following the victory, and while it would be quite the step up in competition, it's hard to deny the wishes of a young, exciting fighter after such a masterclass. Garry (13-0-0) remains undefeated in his professional MMA career as a result of the victory.
New opponent scheduled
August 10, 2023
Garry will fight Neil Magny in a welterweight bout at UFC 292 in Boston on Aug. 19, according to MMAFighting.com.
Garry was supposed to fight No. 8 Geoff Neal, but the latter withdrew because of medical reasons. Fortunately for the undefeated Irishman, he still has an opportunity to boost himself up the UFC's welterweight rankings by defeating No. 11 Magny.
Not fighting Neal
August 9, 2023
Garry will not fight Geoff Neal at UFC 292 on Aug. 19, according to Mike Bohn of MMAJunkie.com.
Neal withdrew because of medical reasons. This is unwelcome news for Garry, as a win over Neal would have propelled him to the upper echelon of the UFC's welterweight rankings. Currently, he remains without an opponent with less than two weeks before the pay-per-view.
Scheduled to fight Neal
June 14, 2023
Garry will fight Geoff Neal in a welterweight bout scheduled for UFC 292 at Boston on Aug 19, according to MMAJunkie.com.
Garry, now part of the UFC's welterweight rankings at No. 13, has a valuable opportunity to make an incredible jump by defeating Neal, who is ranked eighth. Currently, Garry is 5-0 in the UFC, with three KO/TKOs and two decisions. He already has two victories in 2023, with them being TKOs over Song Kenan and Daniel Rodriguez.
Remains undefeated as pro
May 13, 2023
Garry defeated Daniel Rodriguez via TKO (strikes) at 2:57 of Round 1 at UFC on ABC 4 on Saturday in Charlotte.
Garry has now won each of his first five UFC bouts, although early on during his time with the company he appeared to be simply relying on his physical gifts for success. The last couple times out, he has started to fight considerably smarter. He allowed Rodriguez zero openings here before clocking him with a head kick and closing the show with some follow-up shots, which would go on to earn him a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus. Massive for the welterweight division at 6-foot-3, Garry has the length, athleticism and power to give his opposition fits on the feet. His secondary skills are solid enough that he should have no significant holes in his game as he continues to develop. Garry won't be 26 years of age until mid-November and remains one of the highest-ceiling prospects around at 170 pounds.
