Conor McGregor to get own statue for 30th birthday

“ATLAS”, sculpture. Platinum silicone and marble powder

For his 30th birthday, MMA fighter Conor McGregor will receive a "hyper-realistic" sculpture of himself from Lithuanian artist Edgar Askelovic - better known by the name Aspencrow - which is valued at around $90,000.

"It is an honour that Conor has accepted this gift from me", the artist told The Evening Standard.

Controversial MMA fighter Conor McGregor has chose to gift himself the only thing he doesn't already own, and that is a life-size statue of himself carved out of stone.

"He is a phenomenon of our time - not just a smart athlete", Askelovic said.

What President Trump said about May, Brexit, and 'England'
He also said May's plans are "not the deal that was in the [Brexit] referendum". "I would have done it much differently". Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis both quit the government this week in protest.

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

The artist admits that he hasn't actually spoken to McGregor directly, but has been communicating with him through a friend. Luckily McGregor is clothed in this statue, unlike Michelangelo's David. "Someone Conor will remind a prisoner, someone- God, and others - ordinary people", - quotes the words of the artist BBC. "He's a great guy", Aspencrow continued. 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. "I feel he's my soulmate".

The other two identical sculptures of McGregor will be sold by JD Malat Gallery, where it will be on view to the public as part of their summer exhibition from July 14 until September 30. Some of the decisions he makes might not be correct, but none of us are ideal."And now it's officially weird".
