Irish fighter dismisses opponent ahead of UFC 303

Irish fighter dismisses opponent ahead of UFC 303DAZN
There's a huge fight later this month.

Ian Garry has been added to the UFC 303 card to fight Michael ‘Venom’ Page, and Garry has dismissed the challenge posed by the Englishman.

The two contenders will be fighting at the end of the month on a card headlined by Conor McGregor’s comeback, when the Irish fighter takes on Michael Chandler.

Garry is 26, while veteran Page is 37 years old, and he has little interest in taking on the veteran.

He told Lucky Block: “I wasn't remotely interested in this fight [MVP], I’m not going to lie. I was looking for a top five opponent, but there was no one available above me to fight. 

“So now I  had no choice if I wanted to fight - but to look down and go; ‘Who's the biggest name Who's the biggest test that UFC fans want to see me go up against?’. Everyone was saying Michael Page, then that’s the one guy to make it happen with, but I wasn't remotely interested in fighting him.

“I believe I’m levels above him [MVP] in every single way, shape and form, and this is just an opportunity to show it, to prove it to people. I can go; ‘You guys think this guy is good?’, okay, let’s see when he shows up on June 29th in Las Vegas. Let’s see when we stand in that octagon, I’ll use him as an example.”
