There have been rumors in recent days that Ultimate Fighting Champion Connor McGregor will appear on the upcoming season of the popular HBO show, Game of Thrones. Those rumors appear to be true.

UFC President Dana White while answering a question on Fox Sports Live seemed to give away the secret. "I know that a few months ago they were interested in putting him in the show," White said. "I'm glad he did it. It'll be great."

A popular Game of Thrones fan site called 'Watchers of the Wall' is reporting that McGregor will play a pirate belonging to Euron Greyjoy's crew. Supposibly the part does not include any speaking and will be a one time cameo.
