Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud calls out Conor McGregor and immediately regrets it
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud might regret calling out UFC star Conor McGregor after admitting he 'might' last 10 seconds in the Octagon.
The Frenchman was asked his thoughts on facing the Irish featherweight champion.
Giroud, 30, revealed he has never been in a cage and said 'McGregor, when you want' before immediately back tracking.
"Okay, I'm dead," sighed Giroud, who's only made three appearances and failed to score this season for the Gunners.
In an interview on Arsenal's YouTube channel, Giroud's French team-mate, Laurent Koscielny, then asked how long he would last against McGregor, who's due to fight for Eddie Alvarez title in New York on November 12.
Giroud replied: "Maybe 10 seconds?" The striker's confidence in tackling McGregor quickly wilted as soon as the prospect of facing the Irishman loomed.
