Ian Garry, known as “The Future,” is gearing up for his UFC 298 bout against Geoff Neal with his usual flair for pre-fight predictions. However, his latest proclamation has raised eyebrows and left many scratching their heads.

He’ll choose when he’s done.”

Ian Garry posts weird analogy as he insults his opponent ahead of UFC 298
Ian Garry’s analogy took a peculiar turn as he expressed his intention to kick Neal to the body, prompting him to react like a dog defecating. Garry went on to insult Neal as he stated “I’d like to kick him to the body and have him do that — when the dog’s sh***ing. The dogs look at you like, when they’re pooing, for protection. That’s what they do, right? Dogs look at their owners when they’re pooing because that’s when they’re vulnerable for attack.”
The welterweight contender, currently ranked at No. 10, aims to climb the rankings by defeating Neal and potentially challenging top names like Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman. Additionally, Garry has expressed interest in settling a feud with former middleweight champion Sean Strickland, who targeted Garry’s wife on social media, igniting a public spat.

Speculation surrounds Garry’s wife, with some fans questioning if she plays a behind-the-scenes role in orchestrating her husband’s pre-fight antics. The couple has not shied away from the public eye, even releasing footage of her assisting Ian Garry in creating a controversial Geoff Neal mugshot shirt. In the latest Instagram video, her laughter in response to Garry’s peculiar analogy adds to the intrigue surrounding their dynamic.
Garry’s journey to UFC 298 hasn’t been without setbacks, as he was forced to withdraw from his last fight at UFC 296 due to a severe case of pneumonia. Despite the internet’s prior fascination with the intimate details of his relationship, the hype has somewhat subsided. However, as Garry heads to Anaheim, California for UFC 298 fight week, the spotlight may reignite interest, especially considering the mental warfare potentially directed at him rather than his opponent.
