Fresh off leading Portugal to an improbable Euro 2016 championship, Cristiano Ronaldo is celebrating his success by getting into the ring with UFC fighter Conor McGregor.

No, Real Madrid fans currently having a panic attack, he is not actually sparring with the UFC star. The below shot is just a staged photo opportunity between friends.

Great to see you bro!!💪🏽🔝

But when you place the two superstars side by side, the uninformed would have difficultly telling which one plays soccer and which one makes a living in the ring.  

If the two were really going to fight, Ronaldo (6-foot-1) does have size and length on McGregor (5-foot-9). But McGregor has the advantage in well, actually being a UFC fighter, so Ronaldo might be out of luck there. Still, if there was any international soccer superstar that could possibly take on McGregor in the Octagon, it is probably Ronaldo.
