(VIDEO), Watch Conor McGregor Spar With ‘The Mountain’ From ‘Game of Thrones,’ Highlight Hollywood News


Fans of the most successful HBO series in history “Game of Thrones” know Iceland’s Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson simply as “The Mountain.”   The hulking strongman competitor wrenched the hearts of fans when he crushed Oberyn Martell’s skull with his bare hands back in season four.



While, UFC fighter Conor McGregor actually punches people in the face for a living, and up to this point, the 18-2 interim featherweight champ has been impressive.



McGregor is 5-foot-9 and fights at 145 pounds; Bjornsson is 6-foot-9, 420 pounds. But thanks to the entertainment gods (and the Internet), somehow Conor McGregor and Björnsson recently found themselves in a sparring session together. And the results are just as amazing as you’d imagine.
