UFC star Conor McGregor recently declared he has ‘no interest’ of appearing in the huge HBO fantasy ‘Game Of Thrones’, despite he was considered.
Late last year Northern Ireland newspaper Sunday Life claimed a source as saying: “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 Game of Thrones directors is a huge UFC fan. They believed he would be the perfect fit for the show.”
Conor recently declared that he will NOT have a cameo role in the new season, or final season, much to the sadness of some fans, who believed that he would have been the perfect cameo.
It seemed fans were excited to see him feature!
What did McGregor say?
McGregor spoke with Good Times Network saying “That [Game of Thrones rumour] was everywhere and I’ve never even heard about it,” he said “I heard about it once after [a fight]… They were in front of me and they were saying, ‘These [people] want you to be in Game of Thrones‘. I’m banged up, my shin’s in a heap, I’ve been kicking his (opponent) knee straight for 25 minutes, my leg’s in bits, and he’s trying to offer me a Game of Thrones role!”. He also added”I’m saying, ‘Listen, come at me with s*** I want to hear; I’m not trying to be in show business, I’m trying to be in the fight business… Come at me with a real number to fight again.”
McGregor claimed he’d never been approached “That was the only time I ever heard [about] Game of Thrones, and it went everywhere, like, months later! I don’t know where that came from. But I’ve never been in contact with nobody from Game of Thrones.”
