Conor McGregor Inspired Ian Garry

The former Cage Warriors champion Ian Garry will soon make his UFC debut. The latter dominated his previous promotion. Garry shares the same nationality as the UFC star Conor McGregor. He also believes that ‘The Notorious’ has changed the face of the game and inspired his professional career.

In an episode of MMA Hour, Garry said, “Do I not like to be compared to one of biggest sport stars of all time? Of course, I like the comparison! Obviously, being Irish, there are similarities. It’s like any college basketball player being compared to Michael Jordan. Conor McGregor changed the game in MMA.”

He continued, “He brought so many eyes to the sport. If I can do something similar then that’s a win. He’s the reason I’m in MMA. His rise was why MMA got huge in Dublin and Ireland. Similarly, if I can put people in gyms because they want to be like me after seeing me put on a show, it’s all you can ask for”

Garry surely draws inspiration from one of the best in the promotion, and it reflects in his resume. Garry is currently on a seven-fight win streak. He is undefeated in his professional career.
