While Conor McGregor might not be scheduled to brawl in the UFC octagon anytime soon, the 28-year-old professional mixed martial artist could be making his way to your TV screen in other ways.
No, Conor's not working on a new reality TV show. Sorry to get your hopes up! Instead, he could be working on something way cooler.
Here's a hint: "Game of Thrones."
That's right, according to the Belfast-based media publication "The Sunday Life," UFC star Conor McGregor has reportedly agreed to make an appearance in one of the final two seasons of HBO's "Game of Thrones." They said,
It's been agreed that McGregor will appear in one of the remaining two seasons of Game Of Thrones.
So, how did this even come about? Well, the report also states that one of the show's directors is a huge McGregor fan and felt that the Irish fighter would be a perfect fit for the fantasy drama.
You have to admit, Conor McGregor could pass off for an original "GoT"-character-turned-UFC-fighter and not the other way around.
I mean, this infamous walk is straight out of a cinematic masterpiece...
With "Game of Thrones" having filmed six seasons of the popular show, HBO owes the world two new seasons. This means there's plenty of time for Conor to make an appearance.
To top it all off, season seven is expected to be filmed in Conor's hometown of Dublin, Ireland. Coincidence?!
In the past, the closest Conor ever got to appearing in "GoT" was that time he sparred against professional strongman and actor Hafþór Björnsson, who plays The Mountain on the HBO mega-hit series.
Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Yup, it's TOTALLY possible for this to happen!
As a matter of fact, this probably has a better chance of happening than McGregor versus Mayweather. Time will tell.
