When he’s not fighting as the biggest current star in the UFC and when he’s not beating up dog-choking kangaroos, Conor McGregor apparently is interested in entering the fantasy world.

We know that because McGregor reportedly will star in seven 7 of the Game of Thrones, according to UFC President Dana White.

“I knew that a few months ago, that they were interested in putting him in the show, and I’m glad he did it,” White told Fox Sports. “It’ll be great. The show is huge. It’s awesome, and I’m excited for him.”

One interesting take, via Esquire, is that McGregor could be used to try foil the Mountain.

Luckily, there’s footage of them sparring together to give us a possible preview.
