Victorious and still undefeated after UFC 303, Ian Machado Garry does not hesitate to draw up bigger plans for his career at welterweight (up to 77,1kg.). Currently sixth in the rankings, the Irishman stated that he is willing to travel to England and become a reserve fighter for a title fight between Leon edwards x Belal Muhammad |. The event takes place on July 20th.

“I told the UFC two months ago, 'When I win in UFC 303, I want to be the reserve (at UFC 304)'. I want to be there in case something happens. See this fight card (UFC 303), see how many fights didn't happen. Dan Ige came onto the scene. Do you know what I mean? Anything can happen, and I want to be there just in case,” Garry said in an interview with TNT Sports.

Despite being looking for an unprecedented opportunity in his journey through Ultimate, Garry avoided provoking the respective athletes who will fight for the belt at UFC 304.

“Whether it’s Leon, it’s Belal, whoever it is. I respect both of their skill sets and talent. I know they are very good. But I know I can face any man on the planet and have my hand raised. So for me, I will be there (in Manchester). I offered myself to the UFC, Hunter (Campbell) and Dana (White) to be the guy to step in and make sure there will be a welterweight world title fight if someone pulls out. So for me, that’s the next step,” he concluded.

Hired in 2021 by the company, Ian is going through a great phase where he has accumulated eight consecutive victories. In addition to expressing his desire for the belt, the Irishman did not rule out facing Shavkat Rakhmonov in his next Octagon appearance.
