After his second win in the UFC, Irish prospect Ian Garry announced his wife Layla is pregnant with their first child.
Garry pointed to Darian Weeks at UFC 273 in Jacksonville, Fla. to extend his unbeaten record to 9-0. There was little action in the fight, with Garry landing most of his best punches in the last round as the judges saw it 30-27, 30-27 and 29-28 in his favor.
In his post-fight interview, Garry revealed his child with wife Layla, 39, is due later this year. “My wife is pregnant, we are expecting by the end of the year,” he told UFC commentator Jon Anik.
Garry and his wife have been together since early last year and the couple married at Sure Thing Chapel in Las Vegas in February. It came just three months after Garry announced they were engaged, before making his UFC debut last November.

They first met during Garry’s time on Cage Warriors while Layla was hosting TV segments for the promotion. Garry was picked up by the UFC after winning the vacant welterweight title for UK-based promotion last June.
Garry admitted he wasn’t happy with his performance against Weeks as he wanted to win by KO. ‘The Future’ knocked out Jordan Williams in his promotion debut, but Weeks put on a dismal performance to take Garry all three rounds.
“I was struggling to find my rhythm. It’s 15 minutes in the cage, I’m not happy with that as I like finishing fights but it’s experience and like I said before. I’m not perfect but I am am it.” I know I still have a lot to learn. Dana, Mick, Sean, line them up, I’ll knock them out. When I’m done with this department, everyone will call me Daddy,” he said.
Garry’s UFC 273 opponent Weeks has now lost consecutive bouts in the promotion. The American, who also holds a professional boxing record of 1-1, suffered the first loss of his professional MMA career when he was outpointed by Bryan Barberena last December.
