UFC appears to have signed a new Irish fighter
“I am inevitable."
Although no official statement has been released, undefeated Irish prospect Ian Garry has been added to the official UFC rankings pool in the 170lbs division.
Garry has been knocking on the door for a while now, and couldn't be ignored any longer when he became Cage Warriors welterweight champion last month.

The Irish fighter wasn't shy either and took to the mic to make some bold predictions.
“I’m here to prove I’m the best. I’m not here for money. I’m not here for fame. I’m here to be the best and I’m going to the f**king UFC."
“I am inevitable. I said it on February 16, 2019 that I am going to the be the best. There was going to be no argument. I’m sitting here 7-0, undefeated, a world champion and I’m f**king unbelievable.”
Nicknamed 'The Future', the Welterweight champ has no issue piling the pressure on himself, such is the bed-rock of self-belief that he has.

He even started throwing out some possible opponent suggestions, including one that a certain Conor McGregor had a few tussles with.
“UFC, Vegas, I’m coming… Everybody and anybody but I want to fight Nate Diaz within the first year.”
