It was just this past weekend, at UFC 303, that saw Ian Machado Garry (15-0 MMA) defeat Michael Page (22-3 MMA) by unanimous decision. With the victory, ‘The Future’ remains undefeated in the Octagon.

Speaking on ‘The MMA Hour’ Garry shared that even with the win, he was disappointed in his performance:

“Livid – absolutely livid. It should have been done in the first round. There should have never been a second, there should have never been a third. It should have been, ‘Ian Machado Garry takes his back and subs him unconscious.”

Continuing, Garry said:

“That’s what it should have been. I’ve already lost sleep over that and I just have this burning sensation in my brain that is just – it’s the competitor in me. It’s the perfectionist in me that goes, ‘That was where the fight should have been done and dusted.’”

UFC CEO Dana White, at the post-fight press conference, voiced that he believed the bout between Garry and Page should have been scored a draw. When asked about that comment, Ian Machado Garry had this to say to White and any others feeling the same way:

“You’re full of sh*t. You need to go back and watch the fight. First round was mine. Here’s the thing: There is more of a case to say that I won all three rounds than than there is to say it was a draw. That’s the way I look at it. First round, dominated. No one in the world is arguing that. Third round, it’s pretty obvious I won.”

Concluding, the 26-year-old said (h/t MMAJunkie):

“I ended up on bottom somehow. It was just a weird exchange of punches, ended up on bottom, I used elbows from the bottom, in tight, dirty. I had the damage when I was off my back. I went, ‘OK, I’m going to stand up.’ Then I ended up taking him down, getting his back, and dusting him up a little bit. It wasn’t a massive amount of damage, but there was absolutely nothing from ‘MVP.’”
