Conor McGregor is about to get a whole lot more popular. The UFC featherweight and lightweight champion will appear on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” next season after shooting scenes for the show. UFC president Dana White confirmed the news during “Fox Sports Live” on Wednesday.
Last year video surfaced of McGregor wrestling Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on the show:
Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to see a fight scene between the two play out on the show. White didn’t have any information as to what McGregor’s role would be so we’ll just have to wait.
