Instead of granting the fans’ wishes, Dana White has opted to showcase the rising star, Ian Garry, against the experienced Vicente Luque.

Garry, with an undefeated professional record of 10, has been making waves in the UFC with a string of impressive victories. His most recent win over Neil Magny at UFC 292 demonstrated his potential to become a future contender in the welterweight division.

Meanwhile, Vicente Luque, a well-established fighter with a record of 22-9-1, is coming off a unanimous decision victory over former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.

Although the announcement of Garry vs. Luque may have caught fans off guard, it is important to remember that White has a proven track record of delivering exciting matchups and creating opportunities for rising stars.

Fans argue that all other potential contenders in the division are either already scheduled for fights or need to secure a few more wins before vying for the title.
