Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson says he could have killed Conor McGregor during their MMA session



Game of Thrones has a giant on the sets!Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays the role of The Mountain on Game of Thrones, is nothing short of a giant. He is a strongman, and often participates and wins competitions, so it goes without saying that he is as strong as his character is supposed to be. Now, you might remember that he had a famous friendly MMA session with UFC star Conor McGregor, who sort of has a reputation for getting into brawls with opponents that outclass him. Hafþór recently revealed that he had to hold himself back to avoid fatally hurting Conor in the session. Read on!

In case you don’t remember the session, watch a video clip of it, below :

In a recent sit-down with RT Sport, Hafþór talked about how he went easy on the UFC star, says TMZ. He said :

“If I would push all my power into him, I would crush him. Crush him. I had to hold myself back because I have too much power for a man his size.”
