In the latest episode of Conan O’Brien's "Clueless Gamer" the talkshow host takes on MMA featherweight champion Conor McGregor to do battle on the EA Sports title UFC 2. McGregor, along with Ronda Rousey, actually features on the cover of the video game so you expect him to be pretty good at it.
And he doesn't disappoint as his character, which looks just like McGregor, takes on Conan O’Brien's character which hilariously looks just like O'Brien, thanks to the games very clever Create a Fighter mode.
And that means we get to see just what a bout between McGregor and O'Brien in the ring would look like, albeit virtually. And without giving away too many spoilers we can say it's pretty savage.
O'Brien's surely glad that this is only virtual anyway, because he gets an absolute thrashing as McGregor knocks him down repeatedly and pummels his face until the ref comes and breaks it up.
It makes for some very funny viewing as O'Brien gets freaked out at the constant beating his life-like avatar keeps taking, coming out with lines like "My great, great grandfather was a bone setter."
Down O'Brien goes, again and again, while his avatar is left with the bruises to prove just how clueless a gamer he is. Still, i think we'd all rather fight Conor McGregor in a game than in real life.
