UFC rookie Ian Garry married fiancée Layla Anna-Lee in a surprise Las Vegas wedding.
Former Welterweight Champion Cage Warriors Garry, 23 years old, started dating multi-talented and bilingual TV presenter, 38 years old early last year and the couple has been the picture of happiness ever since.
The couple announced their marriage plans last September before Garry’s eagerly awaited UFC debut.
And this past weekend, the picturesque couple became husband and wife at the Sure Thing chapel in Las Vegas.
The new Mrs Garry – whose mother is Brazilian and fluent in Portuguese – shared snaps of the couple celebrating their wedding on Instagram on Sunday, writing with the caption: “Mrs Layla Machado Garry.”
After the score of MMA and long-legged fans flocked to social media to congratulate the couple, with Layla commenting: “So happy.”
Dubliner has been compared many times to the great UFC Conor McGregor throughout his mixed martial arts career, a comparison he applauded with both arms.

I said SunSport last year: “I totally understand where people are coming from in the sense that, ‘Oh, he’s the next Conor McGregor.’
“But that’s just because I’m from Dublin, Ireland. That’s literally.
“You don’t say that about every American that walks in.
“You know what I mean? Who fights. It’s, ‘Oh, he’s trying to be the next big thing.”
“There’s a Conor and he’s done the most in the UFC in terms of fame, money, eye contact [the sport].
“It’s not a secret. Conor has had the biggest influence on the UFC. He’s had his eye on it the most, he’s done the most shows.
“I think four of the top five pay-per-views are Conor’s. The man has lost his mind. What he has done is unbelievable.
“And everyone was like, ‘Oh, they want to find the next Conor. They’re dying to find the next Conor.” If people want to say I’m the next, cool Conor, I don’t mind.
“But don’t get me wrong, I have my plan, I have my goals. I know what’s coming.
“But if people want to compare me to someone who has the biggest influence and biggest change to the sport in regards to just keeping an eye on it, I don’t mind being that guy.
“And I don’t mind if I [want me to] Be the poster boy and they are looking for someone to hold such a cape. “
