Well, put those two facts together and you’ve got… that’s right: Conor McGregor on ‘Game of Thrones’. As per the sun.co.uk, UFC president Dana White has confirmed this long-standing rumour. However, unlike his loudmouth self, rumours say he will be playing the role of ‘The Silence’, one of Euron Greyjoy’s crew members on his ship. (There are more details about his character online, but to avoid spoilers, I will avoid posting them here. Just do a quick search on ‘The Silence on Game of Thrones’ on Google to find out more!)

To get you a bit more hyped up about it, here’s the video of soon-to-be The Silence and The Mountain going at it:
