It's being said that UFC champ Conor McGregor has been cast in Game of Thrones Season 7.

UFC president Dana White even seemingly confirmed the news by stating he's glad for him.

Now in a new interview, Conor McGregor denies any involvement in Game of Thrones:

“That was everywhere and I’ve never even heard about it! 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. 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!”

The Game of Thrones rumor suggested that Conor McGregor would play a pirate belonging to Euron Greyjoy’s crew, or possibly even face off against what has become of The Mountain.
