So, that’s that then.

Rumours have been circling for a while now that Conor McGregor was going to appear in Game of Thrones.

Dana White added fuel to the fire when he pretty much confirmed the rumour saying, “I’m glad he did it. It’ll be great. Yeah, the show’s huge, it’s awesome and I’m excited for him.”

But now it looks like it’s all been a lie.

Conor opened up about the rumour at the Good Times Network Q&A session with Ariel Helwani. When asked about a possibility of appearing on the show he said:

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

“I heard about it once, straight after the Nate Diaz fight… The new owners of the UFC were in front of me and they were saying, ‘These guys want you to be in Game of Thrones’. I’m banged up, my shin’s in a heap, I’ve been kicking his knee straight for 25 minutes, my leg’s in bits, and he’s trying to offer me a Game of Thrones role.

“I’m looking at him saying, ‘Listen, come at me with s*** 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 word Game of Thrones, and it went everywhere, like, months later! I don’t know where that came from. But I’ve never been in contact with nobody from Game of Thrones about starring in Game of f**king Thrones.”

So, that’s a no then Conor?
