UFC Fighter Ian Garry, Vocal Against MAGA, Vows to Confront Colby Covington Before Trump

WATCH: Anti-MAGA UFC Fighter Ian Garry Says He Will ‘Drag’ Colby Covington in Front of Trump

UFC Welterweight fighter Ian Garry is issuing a challenge to Colby Covington, a prominent figure known for his support of former President Donald Trump within the UFC community.

During an appearance on “The MMA Hour,” Garry expressed his intentions regarding a potential bout with Covington, stating his determination to confront him in front of Trump himself, emphasizing the symbolic significance of the encounter.

Despite Garry’s bold statements, Covington, renowned for his provocative rhetoric, has yet to respond to the challenge, leaving uncertainty regarding his willingness to engage in a match at an upcoming UFC event. Covington boasts a mixed martial arts record of 17 wins and four losses, with a UFC record of 12 wins and three losses, whereas Garry remains undefeated with 14 victories and no losses to his name.

Should Covington accept the challenge, the presence of Trump at the event seems likely, given his increasing attendance at UFC matches. Notably, Trump’s recent meeting with UFC star Sean Strickland in Nevada underscores the intersection between politics and the sport.

Garry confidently asserts that UFC CEO Dana White will ensure the fight comes to fruition, suggesting Covington’s compliance with the match arrangement.

When questioned about Covington’s potential acceptance, Garry reaffirmed his readiness for any opportunity, expressing respect for Covington’s stature in the MMA community while highlighting the significance of facing such a prominent figure. However, Covington’s immediate focus appears to be on a rematch with Leon Edwards following his recent loss, delaying any potential clash with Garry.

Trump’s popularity among UFC enthusiasts, as evidenced by the enthusiastic reception he often receives at events, further adds intrigue to the potential showdown between Garry and Covington. Despite the uncertainty surrounding Covington’s response, Garry remains steadfast in his pursuit of the matchup, eager to make his mark in the welterweight division.
