Conor McGregor made a successful comeback in 2016 making him on of the highest paid UFC fighters. In the press conference following UFC 205 he said he is closing out 2016 close to $40 million dollars in earnings.

Conor will continue to be a money making fighter in 2017 and other revenue streams are on sight like boxing. He has already gotten his boxing license (Conor get boxing licsene) and while a Mayweather vs McGregor is not likely to happen we are not shutting it off anytime soon.

One sure thing to increase his earnings is appreaing on “Game of Thrones”.

McGregor, 28, will make an appearance in one of the two remaining seasons of the hit HBO show, according to Northern Ireland newspaper The Sunday Life.

Conor McGregor is expected to appear in one of the two remaining seasons of HBO as the Game of Thrones director is a huge UFC fan and he believe Conor is a perfect fit for the show.

Conor is a also a huge fan of Game of Thrones and has sparring history with the “The Mountain” Icelandic strongman Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson.

In case you missed that sparring from almost two years ago, here it is:

Following the Game of Thrones appearance floodgates for commercials and more offerings might come Conor’s way. As long as his acting doesn’t interfere and get him beaten up in his next UFC fights, he should be on his way to more earnings in 2017.

Mayweather Has no Respect for Conor

Ever since Conor McGregor got his boxing license the buzz of a Conor vs Mayweather mega fight has never been so loud at least on the side of McGregor.

The side of Mayweather however feels it is more talk than reality as Mayweather Promotions’ CEO Leonard Ellerbe insists this is just Conor’s way to get more attention and more money from UFC.

Leonard Ellerbe adds — “He’s done a masterful con job to try to trick people that he could actually pull this off.

Nobody is mad but it’s a con job trying to make people think this is real and even mentioning him and TBE in the same breath is disrespectful, completely disrespectful.”

Leonard Ellerbe continues — “Isn’t this the same guy who tapped out three fights ago?”

Mayweather on the other hand has taken it to a new level showing no respect for Conor McGregor as he posted on his instagram the loss of Conor against Diaz and ran a contest for the best quote:

Expect Mayweather to continuously mock Conor as he apparently has no respect for him boxing skills.
