Report: New UFC Champ Conor McGregor Offered Role in ‘xXx’ Sequel

By Tristen Critchfield Dec 15, 2015


Conor McGregor’s rising star could have him Hollywood bound.

According to various reports, the newly-minted UFC featherweight king has either agreed or has been offered a role in the upcoming Vin Diesel-produced action flick ”xXx: The Return of Xander Cage”. TMZ first brought word that McGregor could be involved in the film, while Fox Sports is reporting that the Irishman has been offered a part but has yet to agree to a deal that would land him a role in the upcoming movie.

There is currently no release date for the new “xXx” movie, which would be the third iteration of the action series. Diesel himself recently teased McGregor’s involvement on Instagram.

“Timing and precision...The casting of the new XXX gets more exciting every day,” wrote Diesel, who recently worked with ex-bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey on “Furious 7.”

McGregor is coming off a 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo in the UFC 194 main even this past Saturday. The Dublin native has already professed a desire to hold titles at both featherweight and lightweight, so it is unclear how much time he would have to fulfill other aspirations.

Timing and precision... The casting of the new XXX gets more exciting everyday. #Iliveforthisshit
