IAN GARRY had an eventful night at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night when he knocked out Jordan Williams on his UFC bow.
Garry is 23-years-old, while Williams is 31. The fight was the final fight on the early premlim at UFC 268.
He is currently 8-0 in his professional career, having won a series of fights in Cage Warriors which led to a world title clash with Jack Grant in June.
Williams had the upper hand in the opening round and even got the better of the Dubliner, but Garry began to grow more confident as the rounds went on.
Garry would land a right hand soon after, which rocked Williams, this was enough to secure victory and give Garry a night he will never forget.

You're fuckin' right it is!" the now 8-0 Garry responded when Joe Rogan said, "the hype is real".
"I just want to say, that was some hell of a knockout, but Jordan put up a great fight for the first round.
"For the first time in my life, I felt a little bit of nerves, a little bit weird. 23, and I'm making my UFC debut at MSG. It doesn't get bigger than this. We just shocked the world. The Irish are back baby.
"Of course it did. It's the biggest stage on the planet for a fighter. I'm fighting in the most historical venue in the world. McGregor, Ali, Mayweather, Pacquiao - everybody has fought here. And now, Ian Garry has fought here!"
