Welterweight, Ian Garry (8-0)
Irishman Ian Garry is a former Cage Warriors welterweight champion. He won that title and signed with the UFC last year. He debuted on a big PPV at UFC 268. In the fight he faced some adversity, but he got the knockout in round two. There are a lot of doubters following that debut, but prior to that he’s looked outstanding. Garry is well equipped everywhere the fight can go. Knockout power in his hands and legs and a solid ground game. Also, he’s good on the stick. No matter what you want to say about Garry he may be the future.
Lightweight, Mason Jones (11-1)
Jones signed to the UFC last year and did it off becoming a Cage Warriors double champ. The only Cage Warriors double champ since Conor McGregor. Even though he lost his UFC debut, it was a back-and-forth war with Mike Davis that won Fight of the Night. He beat down Alan Patrick in his next fight even though it ended in a no contest. Mason lastly fought David Onama which was another war and Jones edged it out. One thing you can’t teach is toughness and grit and that’s Mason Jones. Not only does he have a strong will he’s a sharp striker but just loves to brawl.
