Some late breaking news from UFC president Dana White, Irish prospect Ian Garry will not compete on the UFC 296 card after flu-like symptoms sent him to the hospital, where he was later diagnosed with pneumonia.
The tenth-ranked UFC Welterweight was supposed to face ninth-ranked Vicente Luque this weekend in Las Vegas on the main card of UFC 296 at the T-Mobile Arena. Dana White has stated that this fight is canceled, which likely implies that both fighters will be off the card entirely.
Speculation arose when Garry was a no-show to today's media day, leaving journalists and fans questioning his whereabouts.
Despite the loss, UFC 296 remains one of the most stacked cards of the calendar year, but it will surely miss what could have been a potential breakout performance from Ian Garry.
