As word began to spread that Garry’s wife, Layla Machado, wrote a book on how to be WAG, UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland made a public video urging Garry to leave his wife. A WAG is a wife or girlfriend who links up with their partner solely for status and money.

Ian’s response was to threaten Strickland with a lawsuit. Strickland said he recently had a run-in with Garry in the UFC Performance Institute. The middleweight champion insists he isn’t looking to fight Garry, but will if he has to. Layla Machado has said people don’t know the story of how the book came to be, and are just making assumptions about her.

Many fans online have been going after Ian Garry and criticizing his relationship with his wife. While some have taken sides in the situation, others have avoided it entirely due to how personal things have gotten.

Count Gilbert Burns as one who will be paying this situation no mind.

“Why are we going so much to the drama side, you know?,” Burns told MMA Junkie in an interview set by “Why are we not going to the good side? I guess the drama gives more views and things if people get more gossipy and they like it.”

Burns went on to say that he hasn’t seen anything off about Garry’s relationship with his wife, and said he’s has no problem if it makes the two happy.

“They have a good relationship so far as I see,” Burns said. “They look good. Whatever they want to say, she’s a little bit older, whatever, but we have a lot of people that are like that. The way I see it, if he’s happy, if she’s happy, if it works for them, whatever, you know? Do whatever you want. They’ve been good to me. They’ve been good to the team for sure.”
