Conor McGregor Is In The New Call Of Duty

In what might be the weirdest crossover of all time, Conor McGregor is going to feature in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

This is bizarre. In a good way.

In case you weren't aware: Conor McGregor is the UFC's featherweight champion and maybe the most famous male combat sports athlete in the world. Certainly, he's the largest draw the UFC has ever seen in its short history. The man is a money magnet and charismatic as hell.

Which is why he's probably a great fit for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

The trailer he features in is released tomorrow. We're hearing he has a short part to play in that. No real word on how much of a role he plays in the game itself, but I'm going to guess with Conor's hectic training schedule, and how active he is in the cage, it'll most likely be a small part.

If I don't hear the words "YOU'LL DO FOOKIN' NUTTIN'" I will be extremely disappointed.

Also: petition for a cheat mode that allows players to throw water bottles instead of grenades. Thanks in advance.

    y tho...

      Because money....................I would say that about sums it up :)

      CoD is like the Police Accident franchise... As it limps on it becomes increasingly desperate to convince us (and themselves) that the tired formula still works.

        Yeah, but even the Police Academy franchise was self-aware of it's own tackiness, even playing it up a little towards the end. CoD is still in deep, deep, deep denial about it's own relevance post-MW2.

    So. How did the #ad stuff come about?

    I thought it was a bad omen for UFC fighters to go the videogame route though.

    really...?
    welp this was a silly move, didnt think I could lose more respect in IW but it just happened

    Call of Duty stopped being an actual game series and just became a marketing machine a looooooooong time ago.

    More like now I have a reason to purchase this shit game.

    He's going to change your bum life! You were nuffin before he teabagged you.

    The weirdest part is that his character likeness is 10x better than in UFC 2!

    This is pretty awesome, Conor’s the best kind of character in that he’s either lovable or a selfish douche depending on your point of view, but he’s not genuinely offensive either way.

    I’m happy he’s in the game, but I’m really hoping I get to shoot him in the face.

    Was anyone else's first reaction to the article picture: "Why does the planet have a feelsBadMan face on it?"
