Conor McGregor to Receive Life-Sized Statue of Himself for 30th Birthday

Conor McGregor to Receive Life-Sized Statue of Himself for 30th Birthday

The sculpture depicts the soon-to-be 30-year-old fighter bursting out of a block of marble, as it reportedly took Aspencrow five months to handcraft the 100kg piece from photographs alone.

"If not Conor, if not GSP, I think Alvarez vs. Poirier, I think the victor deserves a title shot", Nurmagomedov recently told Anatomy of a Fighter (transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting).

His latest bout was the biggest fight thus far in his pro-MMA career and he had to go through some hurdles to make it happen in the main event of the UFC 223 pay-per-view event as it went through three official changes that include the UFC attempted to book Nurmagomedov against Tony Ferguson as well as Max Holloway and eventually fighting Al Iaquinta.

Known for his bad-boy behaviour and extensive tattoos, McGregor is due in court later this month to face charges of assault and criminal mischief.

The piece, said to be worth approximately $66,000 Dollars, will be gifted to McGregor for the special occasion, while two other sculptures will be on display and then sold by London's JD Malat Gallery.

The artist will also make two other versions of the sculpture - one for sale and the other for future exhibition.

"I know they [McGregor's camp] say there are talks but we're not talking about a fight right now". "It's normal that someone chose to immortalise him in this way".

"That's how I got the information that he knows about the sculpture, and that he accepts it", he told the BBC.

Edgar - who said one of McGregor's friends had told him the fighter liked the piece - added: "It's up to you what you see in it". "You can see him as a prisoner, or a God, or just as a person".

Conor McGregor's head coach John Kavanagh has warned The Notorious' next opponent that the Irishman's desire to fight has been reignited. "I feel he's my soulmate". Some of the decisions he makes might not be correct, but none of us are ideal."And now it's officially weird".
