We can now add wax statue to the list of Conor McGregor’s achievements throughout his illustrious career.
On Thursday, Madame Tussauds New York unveiled the statue of McGregor with a little help from Church Street Boxing’s Master Class.
His statue, tattoos and all, stands among others in the Sports Zone section of the museum, with the area transformed into a theme of mixed martial arts and boxing for its arrival. Guests can face-off against the Irishman’s likeness, and even step on a scale to see what weight class they would compete in inside of MMA.
McGregor, the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s first simultaneous two-division champion, is coming off a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. Prior to that bout with Nurmagomedov, he also made history by competing in boxing when he made his debut against the inimitable Floyd Mayweather, in a competitive bout he ultimately lost by 10th round technical knockout.
The statue will be on display at Madame Tussauds New York until July 2019.
