The Notorious posted a video as he unveiled the amazing portrait of himself painted by UFC octagon girl Brittney Palmer. The artwork was painted by Palmer before the Irishman's rematch with Dustin Poirier in January, but it wasn't until now that McGregor was able to visit the painting for the first time.
The 33-year-old woman who had been named Ringcard Girl of the Year at the World MMA awards in December is also a very talented pop artist who has sold her work for thousands of dollars. She revealed her latest piece to celebrate Conor's comeback -after 12 months out of action- on Instagram with the caption: "He's baaaack."
Besides her involvement with art and painting, she is also a model and was the cover girl for Playboy in March 2012. She studied classic portraiture at UCLA and also attended Brentwood Art Center in the USA. Brittney Palmer now charges almost $30.000 for a piece of her work.
The girl that defied COVID-19
Brittney Palmer is not a new face in the world of the combat inside a cage. The veteran octagon girl made her UFC debut in 2011 at UFC 125 and,since then, she has become one of the most recognisable faces in the sport. Palmer takes his job seriously and she defied the coronavirus pandemic in May when she was the only ring girl to appear at UFC 249.
