“Let’s put it this way. I was able to master the distance against Neil Magny, with absolute ease. And he is very big. There's no way the Geoff neal lean on me. It's absolutely about controlling the distance, controlling the range of action in the fight. You said he has great boxing, that's the only thing he has: boxing. He barely shoots or takes takedowns,” said Ian in an interview with Michael Bisping.
By continuing his speech, Garry highlighted his rival's ability to defend takedowns, but was not intimidated by his ability.
“I give him credit for having phenomenal takedown defense. But that's because he's a boxer, he doesn't want to be on his back. It's very simple, like every fight: how will I win in the easiest and most brilliant way possible?”, he concluded.
