When it comes to sheer strength (excluding superpowers, of course), very few fictional characters come close to Game of Thrones’ Ser Gregor Clegane, The Mountain. The actor who portrayed the role, Hafthor Bjornsson, is equally as humongous and terrifying in real life. Thor recently defeated his long-time strongman rival Eddie Hall in the World’s Heaviest Boxing match, and his victory caught the attention of UFC champ Conor McGregor.

In a recent interview with Off The Ball, Bjornsson reviewed his playful sparring with McGregor. He claimed that the fight would be over in 10 seconds, if he got hold of McGregor in the ring. He said, “Bring me shorts and put us in a cage, and I’ll fight him again.” Bjornsson also stated that it will take about five versions of Conor McGregor to beat him.

While McGregor had something else to say, “[I said,] ‘Let’s take a cool picture like this’. We squared off as if we were going to do it. Then all of a sudden, he’s bouncing and I’m bouncing. Next thing you know, we’re having a full, bare-knuckle body shot fight. I was hitting hard with some shots. I had to hit him with some shots. He was trying to hit me as well. He wasn’t taking it easy. He tried to grab me and tried to pull my head off.”

McGregor recalled, “I defended, freed the head. I was like this motherf***** is so big, I have to start smashing him to the body. It was a lot of fun. That’s a big man – 6ft 9ins, 400 pounds. And I still folded him up.”
