Conor McGregor, a famous Irish fighter, was seen sparring with Ian Garry, a rising star in the UFC. Now, let’s talk about McGregor, the man who’s been lighting up the MMA headlines lately. He’s like a firecracker, ready to explode back into the Octagon. When and where this epic comeback is happening—well, that’s still a mystery. But if we’re taking a cue from UFC boss Dana White, it looks like early 2024 is the date we’re all circling on our calendars.
But, you know, McGregor can’t sit still. While waiting for his big moment, he’s globetrotting, sipping his favorite beverages, and, not to forget, trading punches with one of the UFC’s hottest prospects, Ian Garry. ‘The Notorious’ even gave us a sneak peek of their sparring match on social media.

Now, here’s where it gets exciting! As the drama builds around McGregor’s return, Ian Garry is carving his own path to stardom. This guy is on fire, with an unbeaten record of 13-0 and six of those wins under the UFC banner. ‘The Future’ took a massive leap at UFC 292 in Boston, where he dominated Neil Magny, a welterweight mainstay.
With that win, Garry shot up to the 11th spot in the welterweight rankings. That means he’s ready for a showdown with a top-ten contender in his next outing. Who that’ll be, we can’t say just yet, but all signs are pointing to Garry making one more splash in 2023, and guess where? Madison Square Garden, baby! That’s right, the UFC’s 30th-anniversary extravaganza is happening there this November.
Now, here’s a twist in the tale. Ian Garry had his sights set on a showdown with two-time title challenger Stephen Thompson at UFC 295, but ‘Wonderboy’ apparently had other plans. He’s angling for a clash with former welterweight champ Kamaru Usman on the same night. It’s a real game of matchmaking chess, folks, and we’re just here to see how it all unfolds.
