Conor McGregor was a bust.
No, really, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight titleholder was already carved up by French sculptor Jean Baptiste Seckler back in 2016 (see it here), shortly before “Notorious” got smoked by Nate Diaz at UFC 196.
A lot has changed since then and now.
McGregor avenged his Diaz loss at UFC 202, then captured the 155-pound crown from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205. The following summer, he tried — unsuccessfully — to hand Floyd Mayweather his first professional defeat in boxing.
And got even richer in the process.
Now, the gang at Noodies is one-upping Seckler with this bronze bust of the “Notorious” one, limited to just 150 copies at roughly $4600 apiece, according to MMA Junkie, unless you want to order the plaster version for about $325.
You may actually have a better chance of seeing the bronze bust than the real thing, based on these comments.
Either way, the
show division must go on.
While you’re at it, please buy one so we can all laugh at you.
