Shattered Dreams of Fighting on Same Card as ‘The Notorious’

Ian Garry is set to fight Michael ‘Venom’ Page at UFC 303 but his dream of fighting on the same card as Conor McGregor was crushed when his compatriot broke his toe, leaving both Ian and his son Liam disappointed;

Ian Garry: “I put the speaker on in my bedroom and I said “Hey Liam!” – I called my son and I said listen to this and I played Conor’s walk out music ‘The Foggy Dew’ by The Chieftains. I was like, we’re going to go and see that on June 29th. Whether daddy is fighting or not, daddy’s saying yes, daddy’s trying to get us on that card. I wanted to be able to say that I brought him (Liam) to that Conor card, Conor did this and I did this on the same night and stood in that octagon with him. I got really excited about it.”

The Fighting Irish Are Still Alive with Conor McGregor and Me

Conor McGregor set the UFC alight 10 years ago by combining his MMA talents with his undeniable charisma. Garry holds his countryman in high regard and paid tribute to him and his ability draw huge crowds across the globe;

Ian Garry: “Conor has a different energy when it comes to pulling people in, pulling different publics in. He captures the American market, the entirety of Europe and the planet at the moment. But he has a massive pull in Europe and everywhere across the big fight capital. They tune in to watch this guy because he’s the greatest to ever do it from our side of the planet. We’re going to prove that the fighting Irish are really, truly alive.”
