    28-year-old professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, Conor McGregor , has been offered a role on the HBO hit fantasy drama, Game Of Thrones, and will be joining the cast in time for the start of season seven.

    The news was announced by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White during an appearance on FOX Sports Live earlier this week.

    He said: “I knew that a few months ago that they were interested in putting him in the show. And I’m glad he did it. It’ll be great. Yeah, the show’s huge, it’s awesome and I’m excited for him.”

    The casting choice has left fans of both Conor and the show with tongues wagging as speculation circles about the kind of role the UFC star will play in the production.

    Game of Thrones fan site Watchers on the Wall – which is known for having insights into the show – reported that Conor would be portraying a member of Euron Greyjoy’s crew on the ship Silence, and won’t have any lines as all the shipmates have had their tongues removed.

    The website reported: “Conor McGregor will be playing a pirate belonging to Euron Greyjoy’s crew, on the ship Silence. The part is a fairly small one, a cameo, so fans who are worried about his acting ability, don’t sweat it. There is no speaking involved with this part”.
