McGregor gifted statue of himself for 30th birthday

Conor McGregor

He said: "I think he's a phenomenon". Aspencrow is reportedly also planning two more versions, with at least one going up for sale.As for what he's trying to communicate by depicting McGregor lounging all shirtless and smoldering in a solid wall of rock, that's where it gets interesting."It's up to you what you see in it", Aspencrow said.

Conor McGregor is to get a hyper realistic statue for his landmark birthday this Saturday courtesy of Birmingham-based artist Aspencrow.

"It's really phenomenal. And, of course, someone chose to immortalize it in this way".

The current UFC lightweight champion is slowly but surely preparing to defend his strap this fall and has a few names in mind for his next potential title defense but they are not the clear-cut names you might think of due to the fact that McGregor and GSP are now not available due to various issues.

McGregor has not fought since his boxing bout against Floyd Mayweather in August 2017.

Jose Mourinho heaps praise on Croatia World Cup hero Ivan Perisic
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insisted England have a reason to be optimistic following their semi-final loss to Croatia in extra-time.

Aspencrow admitted he had neither met nor spoken to McGregor directly, communicating instead via one of the fighter's friends.

If you're in London at that time for whatever reason, the sculpture will be on display at the JD Malat Gallery from 14 July to 30 September.

The sculptor worked on the 100-pound statue McGregor for about 5 months using only pictures of fighter. "Someone Conor will remind a prisoner, someone- God, and others - ordinary people", - quotes the words of the artist BBC.

"I like Conor McGregor - he's a great guy", Aspencrow continued. The piece, said to be worth approximately $66,000 United States 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. Without bus, without other things, we just have to fight but I don't think the UFC can make the decision about this fight.
