Pendred retired from the UFC back in 2015 after six fights in the promotion after appearing on season 19 of The Ultimate Fighter.
Former UFC welterweight Fighter Cathal Pendred has been a busy boy since retiring from life in the Octagon. His acting career has really taken off with relatively prominent appearances in hot TV shows such as Ray Donovon and Into The Badlands.
He will also feature alongside another UFC Fighter, none other than Michael Bisping in My Name Is Lenny.
Now Pendred is set to play the lead role of Michael Cleary in a new Amazon horror anthology series called “Lore”. “A cooper who makes barrels for a local creamery, Michael is married to the younger Bridget. When Bridget starts making more money than he does, and starts questioning his decisions, Michael is convinced that his loving wife has been replaced by a changeling — and he will do literally anything to prove himself right”.
“Lore” was originally a podcast that recounts real life frightening occurrences as well as paranormal encounters and now it’s being adapted into a horror anthology series on Amazon.
Veteran actor Robert Patrick (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”) is also expected to play a feature role in “Lore” with Gale Anne-Hurd, best known for her work on “The Walking Dead” signed on as one of the producers of the new series.
