- UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt had some words for Conor McGregor when he joined ESPN's Five Rounds podcast recently. Garbrandt discussed the prospect of a boxing match with McGregor and said he's confident in his ability to knock out the Irishman:

"I'll go in there and knock Conor the f**k out in a boxing ring, just to be honest," Garbrandt said. "There's no difference, southpaw, orthodox, that guy could come out and fight on his hands for all I give a f**k. I would knock him out, that's it. I have the best boxing in the game, in the UFC, and I'm ready to showcase it on another level."

Garbrandt will look to make his first title defense at UFC 217 on Nov. 4 against former bantamweight champ T.J. Dillashaw.
