Conor McGregor gets role in new ‘xXx’ movie with Vin Diesel

Fresh off his 13 second knockout of Jose Aldo at UFC 194, Conor McGregor is said to be appearing in the latest installment of “xXx” with Vin Diesel.

McGregor has said that Hollywood has been blowin’ him up for some time now, but it seems that Diesel is the one that has finally convinced him to make his debut. Of course, UFC fighters have appeared alongside Diesel before, with the latest being Ronda Rousey in “Furious 7.”

Diesel even went so far as to post on Instagram Monday suggesting Conor was on board for “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.”

TMZ’s sources say that McGregor has only verbally agreed to be in the flick, no word yet on what his role might potentially be.
