McGregor has apparently accepted the gift

Controversial MMA fighter Conor McGregor has chose to gift himself the only thing he doesn't already own, and that is a life-size statue of himself carved out of stone.

What do you get for the man who has everything?

Irish fighter Conor McGregor on his 30th birthday will receive a gift of a sculpture by Lithuanian artist Edgar Haskelevich, which is known under the pseudonym "Aspencrow".

"If not Conor, if not GSP, I think Alvarez vs. Poirier, I think the victor deserves a title shot", Nurmagomedov told Anatomy of a Fighter recently (transcript courtesy of MMA Fighting).

"He is a phenomenon of our time - not just a smart athlete, but also a visionary".

McGregor, 29, hasn't set foot inside the Octagon since claiming the lightweight title in the main event of UFC 205, a card where he became the promotion's first simultaneous two-weight world champion.

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

The army will deploy 350,000 security personnel to polling stations throughout the country on election day. He is a candidate of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, an election alliance of radical religious groups.

"It's really phenomenal. And, of course, someone made a decision to immortalize it in this way".

"It's up to you what you see in it", said the artist.

"That's how I got the information that he knows about the sculpture, and that he accepts it", he told the BBC.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has listed a few names that he would fight next if he can't battle it out with Conor McGregor or Georges St-Pierre.

The work will be open to be viewed by the public in the gallery from July 14 to September 30. "I feel he's my soulmate".

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. Without bus, without other things, we just have to fight but I don't think the UFC can make the decision about this fight.
