The unbeaten Garry will be making a quick turnaround while looking for his third straight win inside the UFC Octagon. Dubbed as “The Future” the heavily-hyped Irish prospect defeated veteran campaigner Darian Weeks in a hard-earned unanimous decision at UFC 273 last April 9th.
Prior to making a splash in the UFC, the 24-year-old from Dublin, Ireland began his career with Cage Warriors Fighting Championship where he quickly rose in the ranks with his undefeated run. Garry made an impression in his UFC debut when he knocked out Jordan Williams with one second left in the opening round of their UFC 268 bout. Overall, the Irish fighter has a record of 9-0 with five knockouts and one submission victory.
Garry has opened and closed as the betting favorite in all of his professional MMA bouts. The Future was a heavy -490 odds on favorite when he fought Williams in his promotional debut. He was an even bigger -500 chalk when he fought Weeks the last time out.
