    Does anyone know what the situation is between Ian Garry and Team KF? Apparently they have parted ways (according to rumours) and Chris Fields won't be in Ian's corner fighting for the Cage Warriors title this weekend.

    I think Ian is living over in the UK now since he hooked up with Layla Anna Lee so I presume he has just had to move gym for that purpose anyway??

    That was a very strange piece with Sean Sheehan. I only saw the clip of that piece but seems very odd

    Very talented kid, they seemed very close him and Chris so im surprised they've fallen out before hes even hit the big time.. woman or money is my guess here like most problems in life...

    I know people who know him & i get the impression its not because of money ,

    Life can be tough for a young lad with so much expectations ,
    His missus works for BT & is 12/13 older than him ,she was married & had a kid all in the past 5 years, Now there's nothing wrong with that at all & i would never judge anyone's relationship but it could bring a lot of extra things into a young athletes life or it could help settle him , Who's to know

    He's a really nice chap & i hope he does as well as he possible can ,

    Very strange interview, she had a post up on her Instagram saying he was singing to the media.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,594 ✭✭✭✭yourdeadwright


    He's put up an Instagram post saying 10 dyas out Team KF decided not to support him so he's no longer a part of the team,.

    One comment on Twitter thatz he's been Megan Markled whatever that means

    Just seen it now yeah.

    Alot more to it than that I'd imagine. Wish him luck the weekend either way.

    If hes living in England its probably a case of him training elsewhere and the guys in KF arent going to go along with that, cant blame them really.

    Wonder what camp he will go to


  • Registered Users Posts: 201 ✭✭selassie


    Maybe he'd expect to get the James Webb treatment, didn't he move back to and train in England towards the end of his (ongoing) career but was still cornered by KF.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,226 ✭✭✭✭DrPhilG


    Lol, Sage Northcutt has been enjoying the Mexican supplements since leaving the UFC...

    Mad how he's been starched so badly in my memory.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,594 ✭✭✭✭yourdeadwright


    Seen the YouTube video of Garry now is it just me or is it a bit weird & embarrassing for a fighters missus to be interrupting to make sure he what he says is ok,
    The hand on the shoulder & the way she did it was very telling whos the boss


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,320 ✭✭✭Teferi


    She's an experienced presenter and social media type giving him a bit of quick advice. I think she just has his best interests at heart and didn't see a problem with it.

    Would be petty from them if that is the case imo. People travel all the time for the sport. But would really depend on the schedule.

    Or prehaps where he was planning on training.

    Must be more to it. Chris was supporting him on social media and talking about being in the corner.

    She's pretty experience with the media. She'll almost be in a PR role for hm.
    Could have been a bit more covert though.

    Khamzat has declined a fight with Rockhold saying he's staying at 170.
    It's the right decision, but makes he look a fools after the "I'll fight anyone at 170 or 185" "I want 170 and then 185 the next week" etc nonsense.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,728 ✭✭✭✭eagle eye


    Has he recovered from his battle with long covid yet?

    Tbh, given the state Rockhold is in, that seems like the sort of fight you'd expect him to take and get a handy enough win against a big name. Can't see Rockhold ever winning a big fight again.

    Just seen the weigh in for Cage warriors looked like Garry was on his own ?
    Didn't see anyone there with him & even after he weighed in back down to a seat on his own to re-hydrate ,

    Surely he has someone to corner him ? Would you be aloud to fight without someone in the corner

    Hes going full mike Perry. Have they not bought an apartment in Dublin? She posted home and Irish shamrock a while back. Maybe she's unhappy and wants to go back to the UK?

    Honestly iv no idea where they are living ,

    I just hope the lad reaches his potential pivotal moment in his tomorrow night i hope it goes well ,

    Chimaev is a muppet. Beats up 2 cans back to back and starts talking like hes a world champion. Like a dagestani James Gallagher.

    It seems to me like the Tommy Gunn story in Rocky. Garry claimed it was the team doing all the talking and he'd say nothing until after the fight and then released a statement claiming it was over and he had to get out his side as Team KF were doing all the talking. Has anyone seen King or Fields say anything? I haven't and they are exceptionally quiet of social media. They are the biggest losers out of all this. Garry may go on to have a great career but the two lads who helped him get to where he is are gonzo. They never got the UFC money as a gym like Sence Kavanagh's SBG did.

    ILook guys always move camps and things happen but its strange it happened 10 days out and at such a pivotal time for him,

    Garry & "the team" are on the verge of the big time , seems very strange that a middle ground could not be found seen as you mentioned there is a lot to lose on both sides,

    Garry most important fight that could set him up for life
    The lads getting that UFC recognition for the gym that could also set them up for life,
    That's without even going into the fact Garry been there from day one & always seemed to have a reat relationship with them ,

    Just seems a shame for all involved

    They’re a relatively young gym. Haven’t had anyone get to that level until Garry. That’s pretty normal. In fact, never getting to the UFC is normal.
    A bit unfair to bemoan Kavanagh’s success. He did the yards in the little leagues for years too.

    Whats “Sence”? Somebody posted that the other day and I thought it was a typo. But there it is again.
