Undefeated and on a meteoric rise in his career, Ian Machado Garry recognizes that he is close to a possible fight for the title and is already aiming at the top of the welterweight category (up to 77,1kg.). Despite always highlighting the 'fearful' stance of Colby covington, the Irishman added another veteran to his list: Kamaru Usman. In the athlete's view, the Nigerian will avoid confrontation.

“Colby is never taking the fight. He is running scared. After (UFC 303), he said: 'Yeah, screw it, see you later'. He's jumping on someone's rented yacht, acting like it's his. Look, there's Usman, one of the greatest champions we've ever seen. I believe he will be scared and won't do the challenge either. He doesn’t want to fight someone so young and dangerous,” said Garry in an interview with 'TNT Sports'.

By continuing his speech, Ian demonstrated that he was only interested in fighters above the rankings. Currently the fighter occupies seventh position in the category.

“I just have to see how the rest of the division plays out now. I'm in the driver's seat. There are only a few people I can fight that will be above me,” he concluded.
