Someone has simulated McGregor v Mayweather in WWE 2K17, and it’s perfect

A lot of people think it's going to play out just like this

It’s finally happening – UFC biggest star Conor McGregor is actually going to step into the ring against the undefeated multiple world champion boxer Floyd May Weather Jr.

The fight doesn’t take place until August – and while that does give us a lot of time to enjoy the trash-talking (oh, the trash-talking is going to be sooooo good), it is going to be an agonizing wait for fight fans.

In the interim, a fan has simulated what the fight might be like, using the highest-tech software available – the WWE 2K17 video game. The WWE 2K games are famed for their ultra-detailed create-a-character modes, and the models of McGregor and Mayweather both look pretty great.

How the fight plays out though is not quite as realistic – but it is how a lot of people think it might play out. Take a look:

Preview of Mayweather vs McGregor Fight

What do you think? Has McGregor spent all this time chasing Mayweather just to go down in one punch?

In case you were wondering, this is what it looked like when Floyd Mayweather stepped into a WWE ring IRL.
