Garry said: “If I’m not the biggest star right now, I will be.

“When I beat Colby Covington in the next few fights, I will be. If I’m not now, when I beat Wonderboy, I will be.

“If I’m not now, when I have this belt wrapped around my waist, I definitely will be.

“I’m 25 and I’m telling you now, I have to prove that I’m the best striker this division has ever seen. To be the best striker, you have to beat the best strikers.

“Everyone has Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson on this list, so give me Thompson anytime, anywhere for five rounds. I’m going to prove to you that I’m the next generation of strikers in the world.”

In the main event, American Sean O’Malley stunned Aljamain Sterling with a brutal second-round knockout to become the new UFC bantamweight champion.
