Former Cage Warriors welterweight champion Ian Garry is set for big show debut at UFC 268 later this year.
Garry, a 23-year-old Irish MMA product who is a perfect 7-0 in his pro career, signed with the UFC back in July. Ahead of his debut for the promotion, he has relocated stateside and is training at the world-renowned Sanford MMA gym in Deerfield Beach, Florida. With Garry now signed with the world’s leading MMA promotion, the matchmakers were quickly able to get him signed to his first fight in the Octagon. On November 6, Garry will step into the UFC Octagon for the first time when he takes on Jordan Williams at UFC 268. The stacked pay-per-view card is set to take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Garry (7-0) was the Cage Warriors welterweight champion before he left the promotion to sign with the UFC. Cage Warriors is one of Europe’s top MMA promotions and it has sent a number of incredible fighters to the UFC over the years, including superstar Conor McGregor and top prospect Paddy Pimblett, to name a few. Garry is also a fantastic prospect. Just 23, he already has five finishes so far in his MMA career. He has only been a pro since 2019 and is already signed to the UFC, which shows you how much talent he has.
Williams (9-5, 1 NC) joined the UFC after knocking out Gregory Rodrigues last year on Dana White’s Contender Series. However, he has been disappointing so far in the Octagon with back-to-back losses to Mickey Gall and Nassourdine Imavov. Going up against Garry, the matchups do not get any easier.
UFC 268 also features a main event between UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington, as well as the rematch between strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and Weili Zhang.
