It’s been reported that UFC champ Conor McGregor is in talks to appear in one of the remaining two seasons of the fantasy hit!
A source told the publication:
“It’s been agreed that McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons of Game of Thrones. 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.”
Any potential role for the MMA fighter is up for speculation, though his intimidating mug and combative Northern demeanor already make him a perfect Wildling.
Either way, McGregor already has experience facing off against some GoT adversaries.
Last year, he teamed up with Sir Gregor Clegane actor Hafpor Julius Bjornsson for an intense training session:
So, maybe the scrappy fighter will finally be the one to defeat The Mountain? (JK, that target has The Hound’s name all over it.)
McGregor added fuel to the rumors when he travelled to Belfast over the weekend for multiple appearances — where production just so happens to be currently filming season seven!
While there’s no official confirmation whether the Irish athlete will actually guest star, he’s gonna be pretty hard to kill off if he does!
Do YOU think McGregor will appear on GoT?
