UFC President, Dana White, vindicated the rumors of Conor McGregor taking on a role in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones officially here recently, but this doesn’t come before talk of Floyd “Money” Mayweather wanting to get the Irishman in the ring. Floyd responded by saying when asked about the rumors,”I’m dead serious” about fighting Conor.
McGregor, who finds himself in the news heavily now days almost 24 hours a day, consequently may want to take the role on KoT before he takes that fight with Floyd, lol. The “Notorious One” as called, couldn’t stand another peppering like the one he received in his recently lost to Stockton, CA. native Nate Diaz.
This is what White said when asked about his knowledge of McGregor doing the show. “Months prior they’ve shown interest in putting him in the series. “I did hear that!” “I’m happy for him. It’ll be great, the show is huge!” FOX Sports Live was all open ears while taking in the news.
McGregor got considered for the role, how you ask? Well, Irish actor Liam Cunningham, who plays Lord Davos Seaworthy on the show, has been known to train at the same gym as McGregor. Finally, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, co-writers of the show admits they’re huge UFC fans. Hope that helps sums it up, although it’s many more reasons. You got to ceck out McGregor’s well-known square up at odds against The Mountain in a friendly sparring match.
His brash mentality will fit well among the cast, hope he gets the role.
