He is arguably one of the most famous fighters in the world right now. A destructive force in the real world. The same aura that follows the Mountain in the virtual world. It is only fitting that the in-ring Irish master has already sparred with the on-screen Icelandic force.
So he already has had a taste of the Game of Thrones world. Not a very pleasant one though. But then again, in that realm, what really is?
Seeing how he is a loudmouth champion who puts his money where his mouth is, you would expect him to have some dialogues. Plus that Irish accent would fit right in.
Though the current UFC lightweight champion may have his say in the ring, he has none whatsoever when it comes to his on-screen role. And that is literally the case because he is actually playing a mute!
Confused? Well, you remember this bastard?
Actually, let's not call him that. The term is used in its literal sense in Game of Thrones. Let's just call him that-other-guy-who-is-ready-to-fuck-things-up and become another contender for the throne. As he sails to different corners of the world to achieve his dream, he has McGregor on a ship called the Silence.
She is named so because every crew member on the ship has had their tongue ripped out, including the MMA star.
