I think he will. See the first Morales fight.
Garcia is a toe to toe counterpuncher that really doesn't use that much movement nor does he use a jab. To be honest, I'm really not convinced that Danny is a good inside fighter; which is what you have to be in order to beat Rios.
He's going to try to counter Rios. He's going to stand in the pocket and trade with him. Rios's beard is what will definitely get Rios to a decision worst case scenario.
But if Danny doesn't get KO'd, I see him winning a SD. The only reason it would go to decision is because Rios would respect Garcia's power. It won't be enough power to stop him, but it's enough to make him rethink things before he goes in blindly. That's the only reason Garcia wins a SD and doesn't get stopped.
Outside of that, Garcia has some work to do. Specifically his jab, defense and latteral movement. I see Mathysse taking advantage of these holes. Rios would too, but not to the same effect Mathysse would.
Oh yeah, factor in how Garcia swells and cuts easily and you have a barnburner with Rios-Garcia.
