First it was Call of Duty, now it's Game of Thrones.
After becoming the UFC's first two weight division champion, Conor McGregor is headed to Westeros.
Rumours of his casting broke earlier this week, but now UFC boss Dana White seems to have confirmed the move during an interview on Fox Sports.
“I knew that a few months ago that they were interested in putting him in the show,” Dana White said. “And I’m glad he did it. It’ll be great.”
After winning his unprecedented second world title in devastating fashion, McGregor is taking time off to welcome in his first child with long-time girlfriend Dee Devlin. Perfect timing to take on a role like this.
According to Game of Thrones fansite Watchers On The Wall, Conor's part will be short and it'll be non-speaking.
So, in other words, "he'll do fuckin' nuttin'".
