“That’s it, everybody, Ian Garry just stole my title of king of cringe!”

Henry Cejudo criticised Ian Garry’s post-fight interview following his unanimous victory over Darian Weeks in Jacksonville, Florida.

Cejudo, the former Flyweight and Bantamweight UFC champion, previously labelled himself the ‘king of cringe’, but has now passed that unwelcome title to the Irish fighter Garry.

Garry (9-0-0 MMA record) was animated following his decision victory over Weeks. The Dubliner led a chant as Jon Anik gave him the microphone.

The 24-year-old then analysed his performance, in which he showcased great takedown defence and landed some big strikes on the American fighter.

Garry also broke the news that his wife Layla Machado Garry is pregnant. He then called the UFC bosses to “line them up” as he wants to remain active in the welterweight division in 2022.

“Firstly, I wanna say what’s up Jacksonville?! Get it going. I wanna hear you. Ole, Ole, Ole!” Garry chanted during his octagon interview.

“It was good. He was tough, he was big, he was strong. I wanted to stop him and manipulate the game into my realm. I didn’t want him to wrestle because he’s a good wrestler.

“My wife is pregnant, we are expecting at the end of the year. Dana (White), Mick (Maynard), Sean (Shelby), line them up. I’ll knock them out and by the time I’m done with this division, everyone is gonna be calling me daddy.”

Henry Cejudo calls Garry the ‘king of cringe.’

Cejudo took to Twitter after the fight to claim that Garry had taken his title as the ‘king of cringe’ due to his octagon interview.

“That’s it everybody, Ian Garry just stole my title of king of cringe!”

The 35-year-old has a history of poking fun at Irish UFC fighters. The 2008 Olympic Gold medalist was called a “skid mark” by Conor McGregor last week as he told Cejudo to stop messaging him.

Cejudo (16-2-0 MMA record) later confirmed he has re-entered the USADA testing pool with the ambition to fight featherweight champion Alex Volkanovski, who was victorious in the UFC 273 main event against The Korean Zombie.
