The UFC's biggest stars took part in a fight card Friday that featured plenty of punches but zero pain. 

Athletes and celebrities instead picked up their controllers for a virtual fight on EA Sports' UFC 4 with the matches shown on ESPN2. It'll probably be the only time actor Idris Elba considers entering the Octagon against Tyson Fury or comedian Hannibal Buress lands a few shots on Max Holloway.

Every bout Friday ended with a knockout. Holloway and Masvidal achieved theirs by using themselves as their fighters, which almost seems unfair.

In the main event, Fury chose to use Cain Velasquez, while Elba went with Francis Ngannou. The two didn't even make it out of the first round before Fury had Velasquez on top of Ngannou and pounding his opponent into the mat.

Even still, it's a much better outcome than what could've happened if Elba and Fury decided to throw down for real.
