Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor's statue
New York: The famous wax museum Madame Tussauds unveiled a very realistic looking wax figure of mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor on Thursday in New York's Times Square neighbourhood.
The UFC champion's figure stands in the venue's Sports Zone Experience where guests can weigh-in right next to the famous fighter.
"We chose Conor McGregor because of his amazing contribution to the fighting world. He has numerous UFC records under his belt including the first person to hold two titles in two different weight classes at exactly the same time. And boast the fastest knockout in UFC title fight history. That plus his natural demeanor and his showmanship means he's the perfect person to be here at Madame Tussauds New York," said Tom Middleton, General Manager of the New York museum.
