YouTuber Simulates Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone On EA Sports UFC 3
A YouTuber offered a potential peek into the future when he simulated Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone on EA Sports UFC 3.
Back in February, Crazy UFC Fighters pitted the two against one another in one of the many simulated bouts he has initiated.
The fight was in the Lightweight division, as opposed to being at 170lbs, and took place at the iconic MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
And it was all-out slugfest from the off, with both fighters heavily bleeding from the series of strikes. But it's 'Cowboy' who emerges victorious, with McGregor tapping out in the fourth and final round to an armbar.
Cerrone rolls into the submission in stunning style and locks it in so tightly that the Notorious simply has to call it quits - something he will inevitably be hoping not to repeat when he steps inside the Octagon with the 36-year old for real.
Watch the full 27 minute simulated fight here:
Back to real life and McGregor's highly anticipated UFC return is slated to come against Cerrone in the Vegas, the fighting capital, at UFC 246 on January 18.
UFC president Dana White has revealed the news on Thursday, saying that McGregor has signed on the dotted line after a lengthy hiatus.
"Conor has signed and Cowboy is ready to go," White told ESPN.
