Conor McGregor honoured with Madam Tussauds wax figure in New York

Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor has been honoured in New York with a wax figure of himself.

Madame Tussauds New York unveiled the statue of McGregor this morning, showing off his tattoos and famous green UFC trunks.

The statue stands among others in the Sports Zone section of the museum, with the area transformed into a theme of mixed martial arts and boxing for its arrival.

Madam Tussauds said guests can face-off against the Irishman’s likeness, and even step on a scale to see what weight class they would compete in inside of MMA.

McGregor was recognised by the wax museum for being the UFC’s first simultaneous two-division champion as well as his colourful personality in and out of the octagon.

The statue will be on display at Madame Tussauds New York until July 2019.
