Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud fancies entering the UFC octagon and having a scrap with our own Conor McGregor. Sort of.

In an interview with fellow Gunner Laurent Koscielny, the French striker is asked how long he would last in a fight against the UFC champ.

Giroud replies '10 seconds' before getting a bit braver, adding: ‘I have never been in a cage before fighting UFC before. It would be nice to try so McGregor when you want.’
