Rolling Stone, citing Belfast Live, claims UFC star Conor McGregor may guest star on Game of Thrones. A source tells the sites: “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.”
Why not? with the red beard and accent he already looks like a character from the show and probably in some regards acts like one. This isn’t the first time Conor has been linked to Game of Thrones, his video sparring with character ‘The Mountain’ went viral last year.
