EA Sports UFC 2 was released for the PS4 and Xbox One yesterday, but Conan O’Brien got to try it out last week with UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor during the most recent “Clueless Gamer” segment.
EA produced a Create-A-Fighter character based on the copperheaded comedian for the segment, while McGregor played as himself. Conan got the first punch in, but even in a video game he was overmatched by a real UFC fighter. But Conan seemed to be having a blast.
Be sure to stick around until the end, as Conan absolutely towers over McGregor and it is just bizarre to see that a professional mixed martial artist is so diminutive next to the guy that pulled the “Walker, Texas Ranger Lever” all those years.
