Earlier this week, rumors circulated that UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor had been offered a cameo on the HBO series Game of Thrones and now it has been confirmed that McGregor will actually be on the show.
The news was confirmed by UFC President Dana White on FOX Sports Live this week.
“I did hear that and I knew that a few months ago that they were interested in putting him in the show. I’m glad he did it. It will be great,” White told FOX Sports Live this week.
“The show’s huge, it’s awesome and I’m excited for him.”
If you think that’s exciting, you’ll be happy to hear that McGregor character will be villain. According to Watchers on the Wall, McGregor is set to play a soldier on a vessel called “Silence” that is captained by King of the Iron Islands, Euron Greyjoy.
