Liam Cunningham, the actor who plays Davos Seaworth on the hit HBO television series, Game of Thrones, stopped by the gym at which Conor McGregor’s trains at, to get a few rounds in with Coach John Kavanagh earlier today.

Cunningham’s character on the show, which just ended its sixth season last weekend, is a loyal knight known as the Onion Knight, and is a major character in the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and upcoming seventh seasons.

The 55-year old Irish actor is the second famed Game of Thrones star to train at Straight Blast Gym, also simply known as SBG.  ‘The Mountain’ Gregor Clegane, played by Icelandic strongman Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has trained with McGregor in the past.

SBG is located in Dublin, Ireland and is run by Kavanagh.
