Here's the footage of Conor McGregor's scrap with The Mountain from Game of Thrones

He’s a big man, that’s for sure.

CONOR McGREGOR RECEIVED a visit from Icelandic actor and strongman competitor Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson yesterday at the Straight Blast Gym in Dublin.

Björnsson, who’s more commonly known as ‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones, called in to the Naas Road facility to do some training with the UFC interim featherweight champion and fellow UFC star Gunnar Nelson.

McGregor and the 400lbs-plus visitor, who stands at 6’9″ in height, went toe-to-toe in a light-hearted spar and thankfully someone was there to film it.
