In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Garry made it known he is willing to meet Covington anywhere and anytime.

“Look, if Colby wants to fight in his back garden tomorrow, I will fly to Miami and fight him in his back garden,” Garry said. “I don’t care when it is.

“I want to be a man and step into the Octagon and face his fears. Face the man who he’s talked a lot of (expletive) about. Watch what happens when you get in there. God will be good.

“He will give me Colby Covington whenever, wherever I want him. He will say, ‘Ian, have fun.'”

Garry first offered Covington, a former interim champion, some positive words. However, he quickly turned away from that during the interview.

“I want to fight him because of the following he has,” Garry said. “The respect on his name as one of the better fighters in this division.

“I don’t think the guy deserves any respect in the world to be honest. The (expletive) he talks. I’ll step into the Octagon and I’ll retire him.”

Ian Garry Vs. Colby Covington Makes Sense

Typically, these kinds of bouts never make sense. This one, though, does.

Garry is unbeaten in his career at 14-0, including seven UFC wins. He topped Geoff Neal via split decision earlier this year.

Along with that win, Garry has downed the likes of Neil Magny, Daniel Rodriguez and Song Kenan.

Covington, meanwhile, is coming off a loss to Leon Edwards for the welterweight title. He is 0-3 in championship matches and 17-4 overall.
