Conor McGregor’s Next Possible Move: ‘Game of Thrones’
Now that Conor McGregor has gone where no other UFC fighter has been before, he seems to be game for anything.
That includes stepping out of his comfort zone for a possible boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, considering McGregor recently obtained a California boxing license and is totally convinced he could take down the man who has a 49-0 career record to his name. It even includes a showing in the WWE – provided the price is right, of course – despite the fact that he seems to hate every wrestler in the world.
Then there’s the popular HBO show Game of Thrones, which is reportedly interested in bringing in McGregor for a cameo in one of the remaining two seasons. It remains to be seen what kind of role he would take on, but it seems to be a done deal thanks to the directors being huge UFC fans.
“It’s been agreed that McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons of Game of Thrones,” a source told Belfast Live. “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.”
This isn’t the first time McGregor has been linked to Game of Thrones, either. Back in October of 2015, you might remember McGregor sparring with The Mountain in a video that has since generated over 22 million views on YouTube. When asked about it, McGregor said “not even a Mountain can take these shots from me,” which seems like something the show could put to the test once again if they so desire.
