Ian Garry claims he has accepted multiple potential opponents for UFC 303

Ian Garry has made it clear that he hopes to compete on the same card as Conor McGregor when the former double champ makes his highly-anticipated return from a three-year hiatus at UFC 303. He recently claimed he has been offered multiple opponents, accepting each one to no avail.

Speaking to Adam Catterall of talkSPORT, 'The Future' stated:

"There's been so many at this point. You kind of lose count. I feel like I've gone through about eight or nine names... They've offered me Colby [Covington]. I've said yes to [Michael 'Venom' Page]. I've said yes to Sean Brady. I've said yes to [Nursulton Ruziboev] if he had have won. I've said yes to Joaquin Buckley. I've said yes to every single person that has come my way. That is what I do and since I've entered the UFC, I've done nothing different."
