Ian Machado Garry: ‘You’re full of sh*t’ if you scored UFC 303 fight vs. Michael Page a draw

Ian Machado Garry thinks it’s pretty clear he beat Michael Page at UFC 303.

Garry (15-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) picked up a unanimous decision win over Page (22-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) this past Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, winning Rounds 1 and 3 on all three judges’ scorecards.

Garry almost cinched in a rear-naked choke in Round 1, but Page was able to rally in Round 2 and land the more significant strikes. Round 3 was close, with Page controlling the start, and Garry regaining momentum to close out the fight strong.

“Livid – absolutely livid,” Garry said about his performance on The MMA Hour. “It should have been done in the first round. There should have never been a second, there should have never been a third. It should have been, ‘Ian Machado Garry takes his back and subs him unconscious.’

“That’s what it should have been. I’ve already lost sleep over that and I just have this burning sensation in my brain that is just – it’s the competitor in me. It’s the perfectionist in me that goes, ‘Tthat was where the fight should have been done and dusted.'”

UFC CEO Dana White scored the fight a draw, but Garry heavily disagrees with anyone who says that he didn’t win the fight.

“You’re full of sh*t,” Garry said. “You need to go back and watch the fight. First round was mine. Here’s the thing: There is more of a case to say that I won all three rounds than than there is to say it was a draw. That’s the way I look at it. First round, dominated. No one in the world is arguing that. Third round, it’s pretty obvious I won.

“I ended up on bottom somehow. It was just a weird exchange of punches, ended up on bottom, I used elbows from the bottom, in tight, dirty. I had the damage when I was off my back. I went, ‘OK, I’m going to stand up.’ Then I ended up taking him down, getting his back, and dusting him up a little bit. It wasn’t a massive amount of damage, but there was absolutely nothing from ‘MVP.'”
