Garry who is currently in the UK with his wife and newborn son was training with the UFC 170lbs kingpin at Renegade MMA in Birmingham last Wednesday morning.

The unbeaten UFC star’s main training base is in the Deerfield Park, Florida where he trains under the legendary Henri Hooft.

But he has returned in recent weeks with his wife to see family and friends in Ireland and the UK as they celebrate the new arrival.

The 24-year-old Dubliner is coming off three-straight wins with the world’s number mixed martial arts promotion, and isn’t one to shy away from training, regardless of the circumstances.

He explained on his Instagram story why he had to make a trip to the dentist after being in excruciating pain as his wife Layla sarcastically asked him what happened.

He said: “The f***** size of my lip. We went to hospital this morning because for the last two days I’ve been in excruciating pain – f****** up through my face and my teeth.

“I may – anyone watch the Leon Edwards vs. Usman fight – anyone know how that went, one of the best head kicks in the UFC. I might have felt what that kick felt like on Wednesday morning.

“So, yeah, Leon – I’m blaming you for my f****** tooth pain.“

The happy couple recently celebrated their first child together as they shared posts on Instagram of the new arrival.

Layla took to Instagram as she captioned a picture of the child that read: “Leandro Vegas Machado Garry
Born by water birth on October 20th 2022. 
Healthy, Happy and Strong @ 8lb14oz (4.04kg).“

The UFC welterweight star also posted a video of himself walking around with Leandro on Instagram as he shared his emotions with his strong social media following.

He is expected to return to action sometime in the new year as the family take time to adjust to life with their new son.

The Former Cage Warriors welterweight champion started dating the talented television presenter, 39, early last year, and the pair officially tied the knot last March in a Las Vegas ceremony.
