Ian Machado Garry Vows to Defeat Colby in Front of Trump

UFC welterweight Ian Machado Garry has vowed to defeat Colby Covington in the octagon following Covington’s negative comments about Garry and his family.

Colby Covington’s got himself a spot on Ian Machado Garry’s hit list. How? By joining the negative chorus against Garry and his family.

Garry’s got a plan for Covington. It’s violent and strikes at the heart of the “Chaos” persona Covington’s built over the years.

“I’ll talk to him when I beat the f*** out of him in the octagon,” Garry said on The MMA Hour. If Trump’s there, he plans to drag Covington in front of him. “I’ll beat the mouth off him,” he said, adding, “This is what you’ve created. This is MAGA.”

Garry’s confident. He’s like, “It’s no more. Get rid of him. Get him out of the UFC.”

His plan? Silence Covington. Hit him so hard he never speaks again. “When he loses to someone like me, a young prospect, he’s going to rethink his life’s choices. Maybe retire,” Garry said. He’s sure Covington will realize he’s been given an ass-whooping like never before.

“That’s how I beat Colby. I don’t care where it is, or where it’s done, I know it’s coming.”

Some MMA folks aren’t as optimistic as Garry. They think Covington is hard to pin down on the fight calendar. They believe a fight with a lower-ranked Garry might speed up Covington’s exit from the rankings.

But Garry’s got faith. With three title losses and a 2-3 record over his past five, he thinks Covington’s lost his leverage. Garry, on the other hand, is 7-0 in the UFC octagon. Just last Saturday at UFC 298, he outpointed Geoff Neal, extending his unbeaten streak to 14-0.

“I know for a fact it’s a massive matchup,” Garry said. He’s beaten more top-15 competitors than Covington. Despite Covington’s three world title fights (all lost), Garry believes he still has respect from fans. “He’s a very good athlete. He pushes the pace, and he’s got great wrestling, but he’s not a tenth of the athlete I am,” Garry said.

Garry sees Covington as a joker and a clown. He thinks Covington was going to get cut by the UFC until he put on a fake persona. “He’s a pantomime. But I know for a fact that I’m the biggest fight he’s going to get.”

Garry’s a striker at heart. He thinks a striker versus wrestler matchup makes sense. He’s yet to be tested against an elite American wrestler in the division. “Give me the guy in the division who’s arguably the best at it. Let me show the world how much better I am than him,” Garry said.

He’s ready to do it over five rounds. In a massive main event or co-main event in Ireland on the Conor McGregor/Michael Chandler card.

“But I promise you now, heart to heart, eye to eye, I will put Colby Covington face down on the canvas,” Garry said. He doesn’t care how it happens. He knows it’s going to happen. “He’s never, ever, ever going to be as good as me. And I just know there’s not a bigger matchup for him to take. There is no bigger paycheck for him to get at the moment, because I am the biggest name he can compete against.”
