Any Game of Thrones fan can recall Jason Momoa’s iconinc character Khal Drogo, but that isn’t his only experience of warrior culture.

Joining New Zealand UFC fighter Mark Hunt in an MMA gym, Momoa was one of a horde of men that presented a Haka to Hunt, before then praying.

The Maori war dance is executed with intimidating precision and Momoa doesn’t look out of place one bit.

Nailed it.

Kiwi Hunt wrote of the spine chilling performance:

Blown away is a understatement I’m extremely humbled to be a part of the heartbreak family and thank you all so much for the prayer and haka today I’m speechless.

I will always go out into battle and give it my all and I appreciate the love I have felt from you guys here today.

Fighting is a part of our culture and has always been a part of my life and I’m so blessed to share a part of my journey with you guys.

Hunt is set to go toe-to-toe with Derrick Lewis on Saturday June 10, and was at the gym in Australia preparing.

Well, that performance would certainly get the adrenaline going ahead of a fight!
