Gamer Puts Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi Inside The Octagon To Settle Debate

Gamer Puts Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi Inside The Octagon To Settle Debate

With the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo debate still never-ending after all these years, Bleacher Report decided the only well to settle the debate for good was to put the pair inside the Octagon for an MMA scrap.

Channelling their inner Dana White on EA Sports UFC 3, they pitted the two five-time Ballon d'Or winners against one another - creating almost identical versions of them in the game.

They made their entrances to the cage and went toe-to-toe. Of course Ronaldo had the huge physical advantage but in round two Messi's combination of speed and skill started to seriously trouble the Portuguese, who was knocked down to the canvas courtesy of a pinpoint Messi kick with his supposedly weaker right peg.

Ronaldo just about saw out the round when he hit the deck again following a deadly one-two combination from Messi but the Juventus star was beaten by the very same maneuver in round three.

The referee had no choice but to call off the fight courtesy of the TKO, with Messi celebrating by reminding everyone that he is the undisputed number one.

There are so many different strands to the Messi-Ronaldo debate but former Manchester United man Berbatov says we should simply accept that the two are on the same level.

"Ronaldo versus Messi, how can you separate them? I think they should get their awards and give it to both of them. All the time. You can't say this one is better than the other," the Bulgarian told Goal.

"Ronaldo wants them all because he is so ambitious. He is desperate to break this record then that record. Messi is not showing it but inside and when he is at home then he probably thinks, 'I will f***ing destroy everybody'. When you are good, you know you are good. Why shy away from that?"

Messi got the upper hand in the most recent awards as he picked up the FIFA Men's Best Player prize following a sublime 51-goal season for Barcelona last term.
