It looks like we will be seeing more of Conor McGregor folks. According to an Irish Newspaper, Sunday Life, UFC superstar Conor McGregor will have a cameo in the Game of Thrones seventh season.
Don't believe me...here's the update:
“It’s been agreed that McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons of Game of Thrones. He was headhunted as it were by HBO, as one of the GoT directors is a huge UFC fan. They believed that he would be a perfect fit for the show.
Although some sites were skeptical, the number one Game of Thrones news site Watchers On The Wall is also endorsing this message, adding that filming will go down at sites in Northern Ireland.
But it gets better! Sources have shown that David Benioff, Dan Weiss and other showrunning actors are huge UFC fans. So much in fact that they even train at Conor McGregor's Straight Blast Gym. So it all adds up to one friend looking out for another in this case.
But will this end in an epic sparring showdown? Maybe a UFC meets Game of Thrones epic kick ass fight scene? Even if McGregor ends up a bandit in only a second's worth of footage, we highly doubt that he wont at least get a buzz worthy cameo. Until then, stay tuned my friends for the official Season 7 of Game of Thrones.
