It's a little nuts at this point that Conor McGregor has become famous enough to actually influence the fighting style of possibly the most iconic comic book character of all time. 

But that's what Ben Affleck told Reuters, when he was being interviewed about the $250 million blockbuster arriving on these shores come this very Friday. 

Now, saying it was inspired by the UFC and this Batman was a "bit of a brawler kinda like Conor McGregor" will of course irk MMA nuts. McGregor is far from a brawler, but bare in mind that Affleck most like meant simply fighter. 

The video has had embedding suspended by YouTube, but you can watch the new Dark Knight talk about it right here.

Still, another cool string to the bow of the UFC Featherweight Champ.
