Sound familiar?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Conor McGregor was a guest on SI Now earlier today (Fri., Nov. 21, 2014) and the "Notorious" featherweight was asked if he could defeat WWE superstar "Sheamus" in a real fight.

His answer? "I would whoop his ass. It would be no contest."

Then this happened.

Sheamus stands 6'4" and weighs roughly 270 pounds.
