If you’re a fight fan you’ll know all about Conor McGregor. But for the uninitiated, he’s the fiery Irishman who’s taken the UFC to new levels with his outrageous personality – and he’s due to fight Jose Aldo next month.
In preparation Conor has gone to great lengths to create hype around the event – doing his best during press conferences to wind up his opponent.
Meanwhile his training regime involves a certain Game of Thrones star. Considering McGregor is fighting to become the unified UFC Featherweight Champion, you’d be forgiven if you assumed it might be Tyrion Lannister, but it is in fact The Mountain.
That’s right, McGregor has been training with the 6 foot 9 giant, and a video of the two has emerged on social media sites.
The Mountain, aka Hafthor Bjornsson, is considered to be the strongest man in the world – so in a real fight you’d think he would absolutely kill the Irishman no matter how much MMA stuff McGregor pulls off.
