Yesterday, Conor McGregor took to twitter releasing the first image of his character, tweeting:
“When the biggest need the baddest to do work, I answer the call.”

It seems to be an ideal crossover for both parties involved.
Connor is the most successful and arguably the most famous UFC fighter in the sport right now and he is teaming up with the most popular FPS shooter, Call of Duty.
Earlier this year Activision revealed that Call of Duty has now surpassed over $15 billion in sales since its initial 2003 launch. Whilst Conor has an estimated Salary/Winnings of $18 million with $4 million through appearances and endorsement partners Reebok, Fanatics, Monster Energy, BSN, Bud Light, Rolls Royce and Electronic Arts.
The trailer for their newest installment, which features McGregor will be released later today.
Infinite Warfare launches on November 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Activision is also releasing a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare; which will only be made available through Infinite Warfare’s premium editions.
