Conor McGregor, the reigning UFC Lightweight Champion and former UFC Featherweight Champion is all set to appear in one of the final 2 seasons of Game of Thrones, reports Sunday Life (Belfast Telegraph):
“‘It’s been agreed that McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons of Game of Thrones,’ a well-placed source told Sunday Life. ‘He was headhunted as it were by HBO, as one of the Game of Thrones directors is a huge UFC fan. They believed that he would be a perfect fit for the show.”‘
McGregor is reportedly a big fan of the hit HBO fantasy series and even trained with Hafpor Julius Bjornsson (The Mountain) last year.
