Ian Garry pushed his UFC record to 4-0 with a late TKO stoppage over Song Kenan earlier tonight (Saturday, March 4, 2023) at UFC 285 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, but the Irish prospect had to recover from a brutal knockdown along the way.
Garry was in charge early on with a ranged attack and sharp kicks to the legs and body. Kenan didn’t offer many counterattacks as he continued to bomb and wait for his window of opportunity. It finally came towards the end of the first when the Chinese fighter landed a huge left hook that sent Garry crashing to the canvas. Kenan followed up with heavier punches, but Garry recovered to see the second. Check out the reversal below:
From then on, Garry dominated the action and began to wither Kenan with sharp calf kicks and a headbutt. Kenan was unable to find another home for his powerful left hook and it allowed Garry to go absolutely in the third round and find a late TKO stoppage with a flurry of punches.
Check out the final moments below courtesy of UFC/ESPN:
Garry, 25, is now undefeated at 11-0 as a professional fighter and is clearly one of the most exciting prospects on the UFC roster today. The Irish striker will need to show more wrinkles to his game in the future, but he couldn’t have asked for a better start to his two-year UFC career.
