UFC fans’ sides are splitting after Daniel Rodriguez missed weight before his bout against Ian Garry – one day after the Irishman left a pizza outside of his hotel door.
The two welterweights were scheduled to come together on the main card of UFC Fight Night Charlotte. Garry put his unbeaten record on the line against a dangerous looking Rodriguez, in dire need of a bounce back, after being submitted by Neil Magny.
On the eve of their weigh in, a very cheeky Garry left a large pizza at Rodriguez’s hotel door, leaving the California native looking confused and baffled. But while it is currently unknown as to whether Rodriguez had a nibble or two on the pie, UFC fans cannot stop laughing at the cheeky prank after he initially missed weight.

Rodriguez weighed in at 171.5lbs, half a pound over the agreed weight limit. Rodriguez did manage to make 171lbs on his second try.
“No way D Rod f***ing missed weight as well,” one fan wrote alongside some laughing face emojis. “No way Daniel actually missed weight. Becoming a bigger Ian Garry fan every time I see him,” one of Garry’s newest fans added.

“Art of war,” a third fan added, before a fourth simply commented “this is evil lmfao.” A fifth MMA fan also believed the Irishman’s mischievousness is similar to that of another high profile UFC ace from his shores saying, “Ian Garry is like Conor McGregor in College, pulling pranks on his opponent.”
The fight being on will be to the relief of Garry, who fancies his chances of breaking into the top 15. He recently told the Sun, Rodriguez is “bog-standard, mate. I think he's a very, very simple opponent.
“He's a boxer in MMA, he's a fairly decent jab that he uses to set up a left-hand that he overreaches and extends on.
"And when you look at that for me – he's not going to land on the target.”
