Eddie Hall agrees to fight The Mountain after he breaks deadlift world record


Game of Thrones star Hafthor Julius Bjornsson made history on Saturday.

Bjornsson, who played Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane in Game of Thrones, broke the world deadlift record.

He lifted 501kg, one kg more than Eddie Hall managed in 2016.

The Mountain immediately called out Hall after breaking his record.

The 31-year-old said, per the Sun: "Core Sports just offered me a seven figure contract, which is the biggest contract of my life. I've signed it already.

"Eddie Hall has been running his mouth for two weeks now and I now that he got the same deal.

"So Eddie, I just knocked out your record, and now I’m ready to knock you out in the ring. Time to put your fists where your big mouth is and sign the Core Sports contract.

"I’m ready. Are you ready, Eddie?"

Hall almost immediately took to social media to respond and he's more than up to the challenge.

“1,000 per cent I’m going to sign those papers," he said.

"And you know why I’m going to sign those papers… it’s not the money, it’s not the dead lift feud we’ve got going on, nothing to do with that.

"It’s because you called me a cheat at World’s Strongest Man 2017.

"I can’t put that to bed, I can’t forget it. People may forget it, but you’ve never apologised.

"You think you should’ve won that year, regardless of the trophies or not, and you let people know that.

"I cannot have that, that’s why I’m going to sign those papers.

"Because I want to teach you a lesson. and that lesson is going to be me knocking you the f*** out.

The World's Strongest Man

"I don’t care if you’re 6ft 9in, I don’t care if you’re an actual giant. I don’t care.

"I’m gonna train the hardest, prepare the hardest… do everything in my power to step in that ring and rip your f***ing head off.

"So Thor, get training, I’ll see you in the ring."

The Beast vs The Mountain. The two strongest men in the world. Bring it on.
