Game of Thrones - Season 7 - MMA's Conor McGregor Cast



Thanks to OUATFanatic for the heads up.



From the sound of things — no pun intended — McGregor will only be making a cameo appearance on "Game of Thrones" similar to bands like Sigur Ros, who have also briefly appeared on the show in past seasons.

McGregor's casting shouldn't come as a surprise, however, considering "Game of Thrones" show runners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are both huge UFC fans.

During an appearance on "UFC Unfiltered" from the summer, Benioff mentioned how the cast and crew on "Game of Thrones" routinely stays up all night to watch UFC fights involving McGregor.

"I stayed up with a bunch of the actors and crew members in Belfast, Northern Ireland, which is where we shoot the show, till six in the morning watching the McGregor-(Jose) Aldo fight this past December," Benioff said.

Now according to the "Game of Thrones" site Watchers on the Wall, McGregor's role has also been revealed for the show.
