Everyone’s favourite Irish UFC Lightweight Champion (the only one), Conor McGregor, might be trying his hand at acting in the next season of Game of Thrones.
The 28-year-old was apparently head hunted by HBO to appear in on of the remaining two seasons of the show.
It is unclear who McGregor would play, but I imagine it would be someone ‘ard who takes part in some eye-gouging.
A source told The Sunday Life:
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.
Conor McGregor has sparred with The Mountain aka Hafpor Julius Bjornsson before, so we’re hoping for a more hardcore fight.
Season seven is expected to air in the summer of 2017.
Whoever he plays, he’s likely to cause some damage.
