Danny Garcia believes he would defeat Conor McGregor in fewer than five rounds in he fought the Notorious.

"He ain't going 10 rounds with me, I'm a seek and destroy type fighter, I'm one of the type of fighters you want to run from when you fight, it ain't going past four," Garcia told TMZ Sports.

"I know I can knock him out. I can knock anyone out I step in the ring with."

This weekend, Tony Ferguson is taking on Kevin Lee for a shot at the UFC interim lightweight title in one of the best fights of the year.

However, as with all things in MMA, the shadow of actual lightweight champion McGregor looms large over the affair.

The winner of the main event this weekend should ostensibly get the opportunity to challenge for the real title, and McGregor has suggested he’s open to the idea but he has also laid out numerous other possibilities for his next fight, with his coach preferring a trilogy bout with Nate Diaz.

It has been reported that McGregor's next fight is likely to be in the Octagon rather than in the ring, as UFC president Dana White is keen for McGregor to increase the publicity of his own sport rather than boxing.

A potential fight for McGregor is still Khabib Nurmagomedov, the no 1-ranked contender with an unbeaten 24-0 record which is certainly an exceptional record.

The Russian's grappling-heavy method has been mooted as a nightmarish match-up for McGregor, but Nurmagomedov's biggest adversary has been his own issues with injuries and weight cutting.

Three times Nurmagomedov has been scheduled to fight Ferguson, and three times it has fallen through yet the enigma surrounding him means he is a fascinating future foe for McGregor.
