Ian Garry returns at UFC 276 against Gabe Green

Ian Garry

Over the weekend at UFC 275, a fight was announced for next month’s PPV and one of the biggest prospects in the promotion will be returning. It was announced that “The Future” Ian Garry (9-0) will make his return and will look to remain unbeaten as he takes on Gabe Green (11-3).

The fight will take place at UFC 276 on July 2nd. For Green, this will be a massive opportunity to derail the Garry hype train on the biggest stage possible. Green will be making his fourth appearance inside the octagon when he makes the walk next month.

He’s won back-to-back fights inside the octagon. The last time we saw Green was back at a Fight Night in April when he took on Yohan Lainesse. That night, Green was able to score a second round knockout. Green was first signed to the UFC in 2020 after an extended layoff.

He made his debut against Daniel Rodriguez and ultimately came up short. However, he’s come on strong recently and now he gets a golden opportunity to face off against Garry.

UFC’s Future?

Ian Garry will be making the walk for the third time in his young UFC career. Most recently, we saw him at UFC 273 when he took on Darian Weeks in a featured prelim. It wasn’t the most exciting fight in the world, but Garry kept his “0” and won by decision.

It was just the third time in Garry’s career that he had to go to a decision. Prior to that, he made his octagon debut back in November at UFC 268. He took on Jordan Williams that night and he was tested. Garry won by first round knockout, but he was clipped a few times.

Gabe Green is a good step up for Garry. It’s going to be a tough test and this will truly tell us a lot about Garry’s development. If he can walk through Green and pick up an easy win at UFC 276, he might not be far away from challenging ranked opponents.
