Conor McGregor to be bad guy in ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’

Last year, former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch went Beast Mode as a character in “Call of Duty: Black Ops III.” Now it seems another current athlete is getting involved in the video game world as UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will play a bad guy in the upcoming “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.”

On Wednesday, McGregor took to Twitter and shared a shot of his character based in the evil group “SetDef” in the new game in the popular franchise that dates all the way back to 2003. It certainly seems like he is ready to give the main character some fits, much like he does his opponents both inside and outside the Octagon.

What McGregor’s character will actually do in the game is unknown. But, if you are tired of hearing him run his mouth, you now at least get to shut him up in the virtual world.

“Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” is set to release on Nov. 4 for PS4 and Xbox One.
