It’s not clear how significant his role would be, but the UFC’s first dual-division champion Conor McGregor will reportedly appear in at least one of the final two seasons of the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones.”
“It’s been agreed that McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons of Game Of Thrones,” sources told The Sunday Life.
“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.”

There was no indication of what sort of role McGregor might play on the series, if it would be recurring, or which of the series’ final two seasons he might appear during.
The news isn’t McGregor’s first association with “Game of Thrones,” however, as he was filmed in a sparring session with Game of Thrones’ Hafpor Bjornsson (aka The Mountain).
