€56,000 statue gift for McGregor's birthday

Conor McGregor lands heavyweight sculpture for 30th birthday

About this fight, I think only Conor can make this decision.

What do you get someone that has everything?

Conor McGregor is turning 30 this week - and Lithuanian artist Edgar Askelovic, better known as Aspencrow - may have just created the flawless gift for the UFC fighter: a massive statue of himself.

"It is an honour Conor has accepted this as a gift from me", said the Vilnius-born, Birmingham-based artist.

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

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.

Last August, he switched to boxing to fight Floyd Mayweather.

Valued at £50,000 ($66,000), the statue, described as hyerperrealistic, will be unveiled at London's JD Malat Gallery on McGregor's 30th birthday, July 14.

Aspencrow's work appears to show McGregor encased or entombed in solid rock, suggesting perhaps he is a captive of his fame - and notoriety.

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".

Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is back in training and already listed few opponents he would like to lock horns with if Conor Mcgregor or Georges St-Pierre falls out.

McGregor, who turns 30 on July 14, will be gifted a hyperrealistic sculpture of himself by fan and artist Aspencrow. Some of the decisions he makes might not be correct, but none of us are ideal."And now it's officially weird".
