After recently becoming the Champ Champ, i.e. a UFC champion of two different weight classes, Irish fighter Conor McGregor is now eyeing a role on Game of Thrones. A source told the Belfast-based media outlet The Sunday Life that Mcgregor has been approached with the opportunity, saying, “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.”
Before the series concludes, two more seasons are set to air. As yet, it is unclear when or in what capacity McGregor would appear. We do know that this wouldn’t be the first time Game of Thrones and McGregor would cross paths. Last year McGregor and Ser Gregor Clegane, aka “The Mountain” sparred, in a truly biblical match.
