UFC welterweight sensation Ian Garry is married to English sports presenter Layla Anna-Lee, and one of her past publications is raising eyebrows amongst fans and other fighters alike.

The two tied the knot in February 2022 and had a son in October of the same year. Their relationship seems tight, with the family staying together through Garry's fight camps and fight weeks.

However, a book authored by Layla Anna-Lee before she met Garry has come into the spotlight. Titled 'How to be a WAG', the book guides female fans on how to get into a relationship with athletes, prompting fans to question their relationship.

A fan wrote:

"Lmao Ian Garry’s 40 year old wife wrote a book on how to trap young rich athletes and be a “WAG” before she ever met him [skull emoji] How did the dude fall for this when she's so open about it [Man facepalming emoji] [wastebasket]"

UFC lightweight Matt Frevola also reacted to the post and was shocked at the book.

"Is this real lol"

Ian Garry clarifies Leon Edwards gym exit, blames latter's head coach

Ian Garry was recently embroiled in a gym controversy where he was requested to leave the Team Renegade gym in Birmingham over a conflict of interest.

The gym is used by welterweight champion Leon Edwards, and his coaches were concerned about training with a potential challenger such as Ian Garry.

Garry explained the reason behind his exit and the people behind it.

"No, I was not thrown out of Leon Edwards' gym. I was politely asked not to return because we are potentially on a collision path. So the two owners of the gym Renegade, Tom and Ash, both of which I get along with. Both of which said it was a privilege to work with me and that they really, really enjoy me being on the mats."

He continued:

"Leon's head coach was the one who has an issue, and was the one who asked me not to come back. Because he has his own best fighters; his own fighter's interests at heart. He was the one who had an issue and he does not own the gym. I don't go up there because of Leon. I go up to Renegade because of Henry Cleminson and Tom Breese."
