    This is a masterpiece of significantly higher quality than the bust made for Ronaldo, and by far the best one I've seen of any MMA fighter which in my humble opinion, cements Conor's legacy as one of the most influential athletes of our generation.

    I can totally see this sculpture of Conor attaining legendary status on the level of the Terme Boxer statue in the distant future, becoming synonymous with the sport of combat worldwide.

    And this is why he's unlikable. Well, one of the reasons anyway.

    Poor people don’t know how to be rich.

    Conor’s going to burn through that money fast even for an athlete. Hopefully his promotion business gets big.

    Better than Michelangelo's David.

    Statue costs more than most UFC fighters' pay.

    Conor's statue could even beat the entire UFC roster.

    That almost looks a bit too real, it's kind of unnerving...

    Where does it say he commissioned it himself?

    So many Conor fans on this site would do unspeakable things to that statue.

    I immediately thought of the Ronaldo statue.

    Of course Conor's statue is done properly.
