This brilliant oil portrait of Conor McGregor has gone viral on Reddit

Turns out he actually *is* an oil painting.

SURE, CONOR MCGREGOR has made his name in the MMA octagon but he’s also well known for his outrageous and interesting fashion choices.

And yes, the glasses.

So, in another week where the story of his upcoming fight against Floyd Mayweather has dominated the sports news, American artist Daniel Marrazzo has chosen to immortalise the Notorious as an oil painting.

But he’s documented the more low key McGregor look… and absolutely nailed it

Not an oversized pair of glasses in sight.

The artist, based in New York, shared the work to his Instagram page on Sunday.

But it wasn’t until it was posted to Reddit that it started gaining traction

With well over 1000 upvotes, The Champ has risen to the top of the popular Art subreddit (with 11 million subscribers).

Suited and booted.

Meanwhile, McGregor’s weekend was spent sharing more photos of himself and Junior in the summer sun

He just needs to get that portrait and hang it up in his gaff now.
