Conor McGregor Will Appear On Game Of Thrones. Could He Win a Fight Against ‘The Mountain?
The two men have sparred before. Is an epic battle in their future?
In a move meant solely to appease Men’s Health readers, UFC president Dana White has confirmed that superstar MMA fighter Conor McGregor will make an appearance in an upcoming season of Game Of Thrones, according to a Fox Sports report.
McGregor will reportedly play a small, but possibly villainous, role on the show.
And while sources haven’t confirmed it yet, we can only hope that Conor McGregor will cross paths with “The Mountain” - you know, the giant zombie-man who crushes skulls on the hit HBO show.
This wouldn’t be the first time the two have sparred face to face. Last October, a video of McGregor and The Mountain engaging in a friendly bare-knuckle fight surfaced and racked up 23 million views on YouTube.
Naturally, we’re irrationally excited for the possibility of witnessing the ultimate matchup between two of our heroes.
Conor McGregor, of course, is the reigning UFC lightweight and featherweight champion, who makes headlines every time he opens his mouth - see the 8 Funniest Conor McGregor Quotes - and destroys his opponents in the Octagon.
