It did not take Ian Garry to log into his social media and share his thoughts on Sean Strickland’s loss to Dricus Du Plessis at UFC 297.
Now, some might say that Ian Garry was a tad bit insensitive to come out with his mocking commentary of the UFC 297 main event, but fight fans – we are not surprised, are we?
We all knew some sort of mockery was coming after all the comments and all the insults Strickland let loose not only to Ian Garry but to his wife, too.
“The f—ing state of this,” Ian Garry went on to say in the video he posted on social media. “Zero technique. Slugging it out. Oh my God. I feel like I’m watching two amateurs fight. Oh my God. If I ever fight like that, please tell me to retire.”
Ian Garry Mocks Sean Strickland After UFC 297
With Sean Strickland’s loss of his middleweight championship, a fight between Ian Garry and Strickland seems to be more of a reality now.
“That fight’s even more available now,” Garry says in the video.
Unfortunately, the Strickland and Ian Garry feud will need to be put on pause for the moment as Ian Garry will meet heavy hitter Geoff Neal in Anaheim, California at UFC 298 on February 17, 2014.
Can you imagine the wild press conference if these two were scheduled to meet in the Octagon? The back-and-forth between them would make for an intense match up. It’s these bad-blood fights that just gets the excitement going for some fans.
Who knows, when Sean Strickland heals up from his UFC 297 wounds and if Ian Garry can take minimal damage against Geoff Neal, the dream fight might become a reality as more than a W in the win column would be on the line – it seems like personal pride could be a factor, too.
Does the Fight Make Sense?
The fight does make sense now more than ever as both men could use it as a stepping stone to getting a world title shot. In the middleweight division, the race is on to see who will be the first contender to take a shot at dethroning Dricus Du Plessis as champ.
The more you play matchmaker, the more appealing this fight becomes. It is an exciting one for sure and looking at it from a business perspective, the money is there for this fight. Too good to be true? Well, we will have to wait and see, fight fans.
Does the match-up between Ian Garry and Sean Strickland need to be made, or should the UFC stay away from this fight at all costs because of the potential verbal controversy it brings to the table?
