Ian Machado Garry wife: who is Layla Anna-Lee involved in husband’s online beef with Sean Strickland?

Ian Machado Garry, formerly Ian Garry, changed his surname after his marriage to Layla Machado Garry, formerly Layla Anna-Lee. The undefeated UFC welterweight fighter recently got into an online beef with Sean Strickland, the UFC middleweight champion.

Strickland, an outspoken fighter with conservative values, criticized Garry’s marriage to his wife, who is apparently 14 years older than the undefeated Irish fighter. Furthermore, Layla is the author of a controversial book and has a son from her previous marriage to Richard Cullen, who currently serves as the performance nutritionist for Ian Garry.

Who is Ian Machado Garry’s wife Layla Anna-Lee?

Layla Anna-Lee is a British-Brazilian television presenter specializing in sports. She was born to a British father and a Brazilian mother in London, England. She made her mark on various TV programs and sports events, becoming a well-known figure in the sports entertainment industry. Anna-Lee’s contributions to entertainment and sports earned her a place in Time Out Magazine’s 2012 Hot 100 list of the most influential creatives in Britain.

Moreover, in 2013, she was named one of the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World, reflecting her influence and appeal in the industry. From entertaining children on ‘The Munch Box’ to hosting high-stakes sports events on the global stage, her engaging presence and adaptability have solidified her position as a respected TV personality.

Additionally, Anna-Lee authored the book titled ‘How to be a WAG,’ published in 2012. Apparently, the book was a satire written against the backdrop of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, many deemed the book to be a guidebook for gold diggers. Her older age and the book were the reasons why Sean Strickland attacked the validity of their marriage on his social media.

Ian Garry defends wife’s book

Ian “The Future” Machado-Garry is scheduled to fight his former training partner at Kil Cliff MMA, 8th-ranked welterweight Vicente Luque at UFC 296, headlined by title clash between Leon “Rocky” Edwards and Colby “Chaos” Covington. It needs to be noted that Garry was ousted from the gym where Edwards trains due to his nomadic training patterns.

Nevertheless, Ian Garry is under immense pressure due to the social media attacks directed at his wife. Garry even threatened to sue UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland if “Tarzan” continued his tirade about Layla Anna-Lee. However, Strickland doubled down and still continued his tirade.

In addition, the entirety of social media is attacking Garry’s wife. Garry recently provided a response to the allegations against his wife, stating, “the satire book you all got lied about,” said “The Future.” However, the social media community did not consider that reason to be true and even claimed that Garry was being defensive.
