Conor McGregor’s been immortalised – with the unveiling of his own waxwork.
The National Wax Museum Plus in Dublin unveiled the life-like statue this afternoon.
The “Notorious” is dressed in one of his trademark suits – chosen by himself and donated by Louis Copeland.
“Boy what a spectacle, what a wax work. Really lifelike. There could have been a pulse there and I would have said hello to him” said Tony McGregor, father of The Notorious, at the reveal in Dublin.
According to the National Wax Museum, the new waxwork is “expected to become one of the Wax Museum’s most popular attractions.”
Louis Copeland stated, “The suit was selected from the bespoke garments we create for Conor… It’s a navy blue three-piece suit custom created to fit the wax figure’s fighting stance.” McGregor himself suggested that his nom de guerre, “Notorious”, be stitched under the lapel of the jacket.
The Wax Museum’s Marketing Manager, Laoise Keaveney said, “We are all excited to exhibit the new wax figure of Conor, particularly in light of the unprecedented level of worldwide attention being focused on his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather on Saturday 26th August.”
