"To create the piece, I looked back to antiquity, when athletes were immortalized in sculptures as gods", Askelovic told the Evening Standard. He is a phenomenon of our time - not just a smart athlete, but also a visionary.
White was asked if any significant progress has been made on a proposed fight between McGregor and reigning lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
His first professional boxing bout on 26 August past year saw him stopped in the 10th round by Floyd Mayweather.
He's due to appear in court in NY later this month to face charges of assault and criminal mischief.
Aspencrow admitted he had neither met nor spoken to McGregor directly, communicating instead via one of the fighter's friends. "You can see him as a prisoner, or a God, or just as a person".
The piece, said to be worth approximately $66,000 Dollars, will be gifted to McGregor for the special occasion, while two other sculptures will be on display and then sold by London's JD Malat Gallery.
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. "I don't know what's going to happen - is he going to get fined, be on probation, is he going to get this, that - when that is over with, then we will start talking about him fighting". "I feel he's my soulmate".
The sculpture, which depicts McGregor bursting out of a block of marble, is part of an edition of three unique variations of the piece and will be unveiled at Mayfair's JD Malat Gallery on July 14. Some of the decisions he makes might not be correct, but none of us are ideal."And now it's officially weird".
