Rare Gunnar Nelson smile thanks to big birthday gift from McGregor and Dana

The UFC star has got some slick new wheels.

GUNNAR NELSON DOESN’T smile very often, but receiving a Harley Davidson as a birthday gift is a pretty good reason to break that habit.

The Icelandic UFC star, who’s a member of the SBG Ireland team, is known for showing no emotion whatsoever when it comes to his facial expressions.

Nelson is currently in Las Vegas, helping his team-mate Conor McGregor with his coaching duties on the 22nd series of The Ultimate Fighter.

The welterweight turned 27 at the end of July but he woke up to a belated birthday gift this morning which was certainly worth the wait.

The brand new motorcycle — according to this tweet — was a gift from McGregor and UFC president Dana White. They even forked out for some balloons too. Sound lads.
