Conor McGregor Fought The Mountain From Game of Thrones

By Stephen Douglas

Conor McGregor did some bareknuckle sparring with The Mountain from Game of Thrones. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, a.k.a., Gregor Clegane, a.k.a., The Mountain, a.k.a., The Mountain That Rides, took on the UFC’s Interim Featherweight champion in the gym and the results were much less bloody than either’s last fight.

The giant Icelandic strongman stands 6’9″ and weighs around 400-pounds. McGregor stands 5’9″ and fights in the 145-pound division. McGregor is actually two inches shorter than Pedro Pascal who played Oberyn Martell. Oberyn did more damage, but at least McGregor gets to continue telling people he will be their champion. At least until December 12th when he faces Jose Aldo.
