Conor McGregor’s Next Role: ‘Game of Thrones’ Star?


Belfast LiveĀ is reporting that UFC superstar and champion Conor McGregor might have a part to play in one of modern televisionā€™s most popular and acclaimed shows. In a newly-published piece, the Irish outlet reveals that theĀ Game of Thrones crew has cast McGregor for an appearance in one of the Ā forthcoming final seasons of the HBO show. ā€œHe 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,ā€ the source tellsĀ Belfast Live. While Conor McGregorā€™s exact role isnā€™t specified, even a minor role would a go a long way in making the UFC champion even more appealing and accessible to audiences outside of PPV purchasers andĀ devoted viewers.
