Rising welterweight star Ian Garry has shared a wholesome conversation with his ‘Kill FC’ teammate Vicente Luque after they were paired up together for a fight at UFC 296 in December.
“Ian Machado Garry: What’s up.
Vicente Luque: What’s up my man? Our paths crosses once again and this time in a different way. Now we’re fighting each other.
Garry: This is nothing to do with animosity. This is everything to do with respect and everything to do with wanting to be the best in the world.
Luque: For me, it’s always been business. It’s always been about being the best in the world and enjoying this sport that we love so much.
Garry: You want to be the best in the world. I want to be the best in the world. They’ve matched us together, and you know what? Let’s dance. Let’s go there, let’s put on a f****** show and let’s have some fun.
Luque: I wish you the best. I wish you a great training camp, and yeah, I hope you honor me by giving me the hardest fight possible. And I’m going to honor you by giving you the hardest fight possible. And let’s go out there and dance, like you said.
Garry: Vicente, that couldn’t have been more perfectly put. We have a job to do and we love what we do.
Luque: Yeah, that’s it. I wish you the best brother. Take care, all blessing, a lot of blessings to you and to your family.
Garry: Enjoy the camp, enjoy training, and I will see you December 16th. Let’s go have some f****** fun, and no matter what, I owe you food afterward because of that submission. So I still owe you dinner.”
Garry currently resides just one place below Luque in the 170lb ranks at No.11 after having won all six of his UFC fights to date, extending his unbeaten record to 13-0 in the process.
Meanwhile, Luque returned to winning ways with a decision victory over Rafael dos Anjos recently after having lost two fights in a row beforehand. In total he know holds a 15-5 UFC record.
