Joe Rogan Raves About UFC Welterweight Ian Garry's Potential

The talented Irish fighter Ian "The Future" Garry is making noise in his professional MMA career, and this has the MMA fandom in a frenzy. Garry's popularity is undoubtedly rising as seen by his undefeated 12-0 record, which includes an astounding 5-0 run in the UFC.

Garry clinched a spot in the top 15 UFC welterweight rankings with his impressive first-round TKO victory against Daniel Rodriguez at UFC Charlotte, which garnered him a deserving "Performance of the Night" reward.

In a current edition of "The Joe Rogan Experience," noted pundit Joe Rogan expressed his admiration for Garry's future. Rogan voiced his opinion that Garry displays an enigmatic "It" quality that distinguishes him from his contemporaries and foresees an upward trajectory for the aspiring Irishman in a talk with MMA icon Bas Rutten.

“(He’s) undefeated, so confident and so intelligent,” Rogan said. “Beating Daniel Rodriguez like that in the last fight, and being the first guy to stop Rodriguez (with strikes) – that’s a big deal. He’s got it. Whatever ‘it’ is, he’s got it. He’s on his way up.”

Garry is focusing on the possibility of a fight against Neil Magny, the 11th-ranked welterweight in the UFC. Garry has stated his readiness to patiently wait for the chance, even though Magny has already scheduled a matchup versus Philip Rowe at UFC Jacksonville on June 24. He acknowledged the importance of Magny's fame and name as a larger attraction and even said he would be interested to face Magny regardless of whether he loses his upcoming bout.

Garry's ambitions extend beyond individual bouts; he aspires to follow in the footsteps of his compatriot Conor McGregor. Just as McGregor captured Cage Warriors gold before becoming a UFC champion and global superstar, Garry aims to emulate his success. With an impressive track record and an unwavering determination, Garry's dreams of reaching the pinnacle of the sport seem well within his grasp.

As fight fans eagerly anticipate Garry's next move, the endorsement from Joe Rogan, a highly respected authority in MMA, further heightens expectations surrounding the Irish sensation. Garry's relentless drive and undeniable talent have captured the attention of both fans and experts, positioning him as a rising star in the UFC's welterweight division.

While only time will tell if Garry can live up to the lofty praise and fulfill his potential, there is no doubt that his journey will be one to watch closely. With his sights set on bigger challenges, Garry's journey promises to be a captivating one, captivating fans and pundits alike as they witness the rise of "The Future" in the UFC welterweight division.
