Garry’s bold attitude and unabashed confidence have garnered a fair number of critics. However, the Irishman is relishing the chance to put the critics to rest, at least for the time being. In an interview, Garry downplayed any potential criticism by saying, “If anybody is going to be sitting here and criticizing me now, then they’re just a hater. There is absolutely nothing that anyone could say to make any sense right now about speaking negatively.” The magnitude of Garry’s victory garnered recognition from prominent figures in the fight world. Fellow countryman Conor McGregor, serving as a mentor, took to social media to applaud Garry’s exceptional performance. Dana White, the UFC president, also understood the 25-year-old emerging star’s enormous potential.

Unwavering in his belief, Garry declared, “I am what I say I am. I know what I’m capable of, and it’s time that the organization and the people who are doubting me see it, too. Dana should be excited for my potential because it’s another superstar in the making.” Garry didn’t spend any time focusing on his next obstacle in keeping with his unflinching nature. With conviction, he called out the seasoned Neil Magny, a stalwart in the welterweight division. Boasting the most wins in UFC welterweight history and a roster of battles against the division’s elite, Magny represents the ultimate test for Garry.

While Magny is currently slated to face Phil Rowe at UFC Fight Night on June 24, Garry remains undeterred and determined to secure a clash with the respected veteran. Garry stated his aims in the following way: “He can separate the contenders from the pretenders. That is absolutely perfect. We have seen him face rising stars, only to witness them crumble in front of his might. Magny has been a constant presence in or just below the top 10 since I was a burgeoning amateur fighting in Ireland on obscure cards. Some of the biggest stars the sport has ever seen have faced off against him.”
