A Conor McGregor sculpture has been unveiled at the National Waxwork Museum in Dublin

What do you reckon?

THE NATIONAL WAX Museum recently moved to Westmoreland Street in Dublin – and it boasts wax sculptures of everything from Father Ted to the… Good Friday Agreement.

And today they got a high profile new member of the waxwork crew:

They’ve got the stance, the suit, the clothes and the beard pretty much down.

His face doesn’t look exactly like The Notorious – but it is very close.

Waxworks are a difficult thing to get right, and the museum explained the process:

a new and innovative artistic and technical process that involved 3D scanning in conjunction with wax sculpting was used to create an uncannily lifelike wax character


Conor’s dad Tony was in the house to celebrate the unveiling though

Plus, the tricolour was stuck up behind for maximum McGregor effect:

It’s impossible to know what McGregor himself would think of it, but one famous quote of his does come to mind:

“Who the f**k is that guy?”

Next stop for him after the fight with Floyd Mayweather will surely be the National Waxwork Museum for an up close look at his doppelganger.
