Chris Brown and Drake killed it with a comedic sketch at the ESPYs -- which is way better than when they were ACTUALLY trying to kill each other.
It went down like we called it -- after a long setup to establish the Breezy/Drizzy's beef … Drake ends up on an operating table where "Dr." Blake Griffin appears to be performing surgery … that is until Brown menacingly pops up with surgical tools ready to do the work.
Afterward ... Griffin and Brown were live on stage, where Chris introduced himself as, "America's Sweetheart."
The crowd loved it -- even though Chris mocking his violent streak is a high-risk move on the eve of his D.C. assault trial … but hey, at least he left Rihanna out of it.
