Ryan Garcia Drops Massive Hint Over Fighting UFC Superstar Conor McGregor In MMA
Ryan Garcia has hinted he would be willing to transition to MMA and fight UFC superstar Conor McGregor.
Garcia is the WBC interim lightweight champ and currently holds a 21-0 record in boxing, but he revealed last week he wants to retire aged 26.
'The Flash' believes that will be his way of battling "against hate and confusion in America."
But in a chat with Rich Eisen, Garcia revealed he would return to combat sports if he had to silence his critics.

He begun: "You know what I'm willing to do? And I haven't said this out loud. Say at 26 I'm done, I've retired from boxing. You know what I'll do?
"If someone says I've beaten everybody in the ring, I'll go prove to them that I'm the best all-round fighter in the world. I'm talking about hands, I'm talking about wrestling.
"I will go to MMA to prove a point that God is greatest.
"And I'll go beat whoever it is in MMA they say I won't beat. If it has to be Conor McGregor, I will.

"I'm not saying this to get money, I don't care about money. I'm saying this because that's how I feel."
Garcia also took to Twitter earlier this week and said: "Imagine one day I don't box Connor but I face him in MMA haha that would be crazy."
McGregor is currently training for his MMA return, which will come in the main event of UFC 257 against Dustin Poirier.
Davis claimed that a super-fight against Garcia has "already been made" in a deleted Twitter post, where he told the American to "shut up and get ready."
Their rivalry escalated when Garcia was a guest on Mike Tyson's podcast and Davis called in.
When the two made a verbal agreement to fight next, 22-year-old Garcia began to strut his stuff. So naturally Tyson, 32 years his senior joined in with the dancing.
