Ben Affleck draws parallels between Batman and Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor in Octagon

Ahead of the highly anticipated release of ‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ on March 24th, star actor Ben Afleck drew some parallels between his character and UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

He spoke to Reuters:

“He’s a little bit more of a brawler. You kind of get a feeling like physical, visceral slugger-thing. The fights are more like smash-mouth, kind of UFC-influenced, like Conor McGregor style.”

McGregor is currently training for what many expect to be a welterweight rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 200, however while the UFC has reportedly issued contracts to both fighters, nothing is set in stone at the present time.
