Conor McGregor is a king in the MMA world.  However, it looks like he has his eye on a new throne.  News released today that McGregor has been cast in a mysterious, yet highly speculated villainous, role in the popular HBO series.

UFC president Dana White has confirmed that “Game of Thrones” has cast McGregor for the show, which is currently filming season 7 in several locations around the world ahead of a summer 2017 debut on HBO.

“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.

Perhaps Conor will take on the undead, inhumanly strong Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane? After all (as seen in the video below) the two are already well practiced with each-other.
