Ever wish Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith would just shut up and throw hands? If so, you’re in luck.
Bayless and Smith are no strangers to heated sports debates. They go toe to toe almost daily on ESPN’s “First Take.” Their altercations have been limited to verbal jabs until this point, but ESPN figured it would pit the polarizing personalities against each other in a “UFC 2” video game simulation.
Behold, Bayless-Smith I.
Bayless and Smith, of course, are good friends. A real mixed martial arts bout between the two probably isn’t in the cards. This is the second time this week Smith has been linked to MMA, though, as former NBA player Glenn Robinson told TMZ Sports he wants to fight the outspoken analyst in a cage over a longstanding beef.
Maybe EA Sports can simulate that bout next.
