The Notorious is predicting a first round TKO victory over Jose Aldo at UFC 189 in Las Vegas in July.

The Crumlin brawler has outlined just how he is going to take down the Brazilian when they come face-to-face.

"I'm going to sprint straight for him and I'm not going to give him a second," he said.

"I'm going to go in with my hands raised. I'm going to be talking to him while I'm whooping him, at the same time. The same way I do the them all."

Aldo has defended his title on a lot of occasions and hasn't been beaten in the octagon since 2005 but McGregor doesn't see this fight going to a second round.

"I feel Aldo has made a career out of fighting short, stocky wrestlers who are not good on their feet and are more intimidated on the feet and they shoot from half way across the cage," he added

"I'm going to go in and I'm going to break him. I'm going to be on top of him from the bell. I will break Jose Aldo.

"I think around the fourth minute mark of the first round I will knock him out."
