Conor McGregor Will Not Appear in 'Game of Thrones' Season 7

Despite rumors that UFC champ Conor McGregor would be making an appearance on the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones, the fighter says he is not going to be on the show.

The 28-year-old fighter responded to the reports during an interview with the Good Times Network.

“That was everywhere and I’ve never even heard about it!” Conor said (via EW). “I heard about it once after [a fight] … backstage in the dressing room. [UFC brass, including Dana White, were] in front of me and they were saying ‘these [vistors] want you to be in Game of Thrones.’ I’m banged up, my shin’s in a heap, I’ve been kicking his knee’s straight for 25 minutes, my leg’s in bits, and he’s trying to offer me a Game of Thrones role.”

“And I’m saying, ‘Listen, come at me with sh– I want to hear, I’m not trying to be in show business, I’m trying to be in the fight business,” Conor added. “Come at me with a real number to fight again. So that was the only time I ever heard the [words] Games of Thrones. And it went everywhere like months later! So I don’t know where that came from. But I’ve never been in contact with nobody from Game of Thrones and now I’m starring in Game of f—ing Thrones!”

    He doesnt have to be paid to do that. Their is two very dangerous guys that he refuses to fight right now. He lied and said he wanted to retire, but the fact is that those will be some very tough fights
