Two Irishmen unveil a 4ft square portrait of McGregor, made from over 12,000 pieces of Lego. The pair, who are part of adult LEGO group Brick.ie, say the project took them two months to complete.
We’re fans of McGregor and big fans of LEGO so we thought we would combine the two together and make this. We had to design it on the computer so between that and actually making it it took us between two and two and a half months. The computer design took about a week and then the LEGO part there is about 300 hours in it, myself and Jay had to make time with work and everything. He lives in Meath and I live in Dublin so I had to travel down every day to do it, but it was worth it in the end.
James O’Neal displays his latest creation, a wooden sculpture of Mayweather, alongside his previous sculptures of McGregor and Muhammad Ali, at an Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame ceremony. O’Neal says his next project will be Cris Cyborg.
Belfast artist Oliver McParland, 59, creates a 25ft mural of McGregor. McParland was commissioned to do the piece before Christmas.
I worked on it over the Christmas and new year period, and finished it on January 2 – it’s the largest portrait I’ve done. It’s probably the largest Conor McGregor mural in Ireland I would say. I’m delighted with the McGregor mural and am campaigning to bring him to Ballycastle to sign or autograph it!
The BakeKing (Ben Cullen) shares a video of himself making a large-scale McGregor cake.
Conor McGregor is obviously an inspiration to lot of people. I love this guy, I think he’s hilarious [so] I’m gonna make Conor McGregor…as a cake. The plan was always to take over the UFC and look what he’s doing, he’s smashing it…MMA and cake making i s basically the same thing. Cake making’s probably a bit more tough.
