Conor McGregor is a “Clueless Gamer”

March 12, 2016

Conor McGregor appeared on Conan to promote the upcoming release of EA UFC 2 in the semi-regular segment of the show, “Clueless Gamer.”

McGregor and Conan Obrien talked and gave a little preview of the video game playing each other as each other (EA created a version of Conan for the game).

For those not familiar with the “Clueless Gamer” segment I refer you back to last year with the best example of how the show promotes a video game with the latest version of Street Fighter was Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski.

Payout Perspective:

Despite the loss, it’s clear that McGregor is a great asset for the company as he is comfortable in front of the camera.  His segment with Conan was a good way to promote the game.  Late night shows attempt to be savvier when they are helping to promote an upcoming product launch.  The “Clueless Gamer” segments are always entertaining and get you to see a glimpse of the upcoming game.

    Should have Diaz on that cover seeing he tapped him the heck out and knocked him off that fake hype train created by Dana “mr clean” white. Wouldn’t mind seeing Tate on there either.

    Yea two losers on the cover.

    Two losers who are bigger draws than anyone in combat sports.

    Also, a 13 second ko of Aldo, defeating Mendes and Poirier is not hype, that is results.

    Not really, canelos fight against mayweather did more buys so he is the biggest draw now

    Regardless of you guys desire to trash each others favorite sport…lol….good for McGregor, the UFC, and the game they are coming out with. Nothing negative about this one…good stuff. I just wish the UFC would promote its other fighters to the non mma crowd.

    Fight Fan, not at all. Canelo was the b on that ppv. When he became an A, his ppvs were all in the 300ks other than the fight with Cotto…another ppv fighter. McGregor did 1.2m with Aldo, and 1.3 with Diaz. The comparison isn’t even close. Rousey also did 1m with Holm who at the time wasn’t a draw. Those two are clearly bigger stars.

    Also, if Canelo fights the best like McGregor does, he will be destroyed. GGG will ko him for sure if they fight. I think Canelo will probably wait until Golovkin is 40 though. Haha.

    I guess Marvin Hagler was a loser. Or what about that De La hoya guy, he was a loser too. Remember that Manny guy sleep on the mat, super loser.

    Man these games are so terrible now. Used to love fight night so much and the UFC games before EA took them over. Now there just trash. THQ or whoever made them before needs to take back over because the first UFC games were pure entertainment. EA ruins every game now.

    Dunlap I can’t speak for the ufc games but EA has always done fight night, they were previously called knockout kings. The games were always good with good mechanics and gameplay. Hopefully they can do good though because the controls on the last ufc game were very rough and made the game a chore to play.

  13. tops E on March 13th, 2016 12:17 PM

    Hagler,pacman,delahoya opponents cannot be compared to the two hahahaha….when they became champs (big fights) they did not fight opponents on 2 week notice and 12 days notice(taken down easily and lost to the other hahaha), they had a competitive division unlike womens mma… beth correia? Hahahaha

  14. tops E on March 13th, 2016 2:21 PM

    Opponents of the two

  15. d on March 13th, 2016 6:13 PM

    Hahaha.

    Aldo…..FULL CAMP…..13 second ko.

    Topps can’t handle the UFC success…hahahahahahaha.

  16. Fight Fan on March 13th, 2016 9:02 PM

    D just living in the past lol, Conor got tapped the heck out by someone with 10 losses and no full camp. Talk about a paper champ

  17. tops E on March 14th, 2016 12:35 AM

    D made a mistake he tried to include mendes as a legit fight….2 week notice…brought in to lose…diaz said he didnt even spar hahahaha…

  18. d on March 14th, 2016 4:50 AM

    Living in the past? It was a few months ago.

    He was tapped out by a bigger fighter who he fought a terrible strategy against and was clearly beating the snot out of early on.

    You guys are delusional.

  19. d on March 14th, 2016 4:50 AM
