Conor McGregor has got himself immortalised in a marble statue

News 07/12/2018

For Conor McGregor's milestone 30th birthday, an artist by the name of Edgar Askelovic has erected a life-sized scupture of him and it's pretty epic.

The full marble statue is reportedly worth about $66,000 USD (approx $95,930 NZD) and will be gifted to the UFC legend as the best birthday present EVER.

It is an honor that Conor has accepted this as a gift from me. He is a phenomenon of our time – not just a smart athlete, but also a visionary.

The piece took around 5 months to sculpt from a 100kg slab of marble, all carved from photographs alone.
